Chemistry and Biochemistry News

Junior chemistry major Krystine Hill and sophomore biochemistry major Sehlah Butt gave a Stevenson TEDx  talk on February 25. They each focused on challenges they have faced in their life due to gender, ethnicity or choice of major. Both talks can be viewed here on Facebook. Inspiring messages!

Prospective (and some accepted!) biochemistry and chemistry majors visited campus on Saturday March 4th. Students and their families were hosted by Dr. Tracey Mason and biochemistry junior Delaney Patterson during the academic information session and were led on a tour of the Manning Academic Center afterwards by senior chemistry major Janaya Slaughter (pictured). It was great to see so many new faces at Stevenson this weekend, and we hope to see you all back this summer for Mustang Days! 

Biochemistry juniors Aeninll Smith and Tyler John are working with Dr. Dawn Ward this semester doing independent research. They are working on an organic extraction of a compound they have been synthesizing: m-benzyloxyacetophenone, which will eventually be tested for its metal-chelating ability. 

Marching band is a great way to become involved at Stevenson, and many chemistry/biochemistry majors join the Mustang Marching 100, under the direction of Professor Mark Lortz. Pictured above, senior biochemistry major Jan Donato and senior chemistry major Corinna Carter have marched all four years. Students in marching band can fulfill their fine arts education requirement for free while earning a small grant for participation. No experience is necessary!

Junior Biochemistry major Becca Holcomb is working in the cold room with  Professor Tim Dwyer to collect malate dehydrogenase protein fractions as they elute from an affinity chromatography column. They will verify the presence of the protein in the fractions through ultraviolet spectroscopy. Independent research is conducted by all full time faculty in the Chemistry Department, who mentor students every semester and over the summer.
