One of the active clubs on campus is the Forensic Science Club. The club has biweekly meetings which include different activities including DNA analysis, interactive toxicology labs, handwriting analysis, case studies and guest speakers. Each year, members contribute to the community by making cards for a nursing home and delivering them before the holidays. The club busy planning an exciting spring event... more details to follow!

This semester, two students are working with Dr. Dawn Ward on her ongoing research project using organic chemistry techniques to synthesize inhibitors of hepatitis C. In the picture above, Dr. Ward assists biochemistry junior, Robert Chen, as he prepares for a synthetic reaction. Chemistry junior, Malik Naanaa, analyzes his technique.

As is our usual fall tradition, freshman and transfer students in the School of the Sciences SCI 100, New Student Seminar, are building reef balls. These concrete balls are placed each spring in the Stevenson Reef in the Chesapeake Bay as part of the Bay restoration project. The reef balls are used for marine habitats, creating homes for oysters, mussels, fish, and many other forms of marine flora and fauna.  

This year, all our chemistry and biochemistry majors in Mrs. Diane Payne's class really enjoyed this project. Pictured here is one of our groups with their completed reef ball. This project is a great opportunity for students to work together to give of themselves for the environment

Biochemistry juniors, (l-r), Robert Chen, Michele Collingsworth and Nicole Heil, work as a team in Dr. Timothy Dwyer's Integrative Laboratory in Biochemistry. In this new laboratory experience, students combine skills and concepts learned in other courses in the curriculum and apply them to a biochemistry problem. Each team of students works on a semester long independent project.  On this day, the students were preparing buffers for a chromatography column that they were going to use the next week to purify a protein.

Congratulations to junior Tiffany Kahl on being selected for American International Select Softball Team to represent the United States in the summer of 2015! Tiffany was nominated for this honor by her Stevenson coaches for her playing this past spring.

Tiffany will travel to Italy next summer and looks forward to playing, meeting her teammates who will be from all over the United States, meeting those on the other teams from all around the world and even finding her family roots in Italy! We're really excited for you, Tiffany!
