Chemistry and Biochemistry News

We're always happy when our alumni visit!  We were excited to see Kayla Bell (left, BS Biochem '16)  and Ginell McLean (right, BS Biochem '16) who came to visit us recently.  The big surprise was that Kayla brought her new baby, Mason, to meet everyone!  We were excited to welcome Mason to the SU Chemistry Family!

Juniors and seniors in Dr. Tracey Mason's upper level chemistry Integrative Laboratory class discussed the new building as they worked in groups on their independent projects.  Although they are still getting used to the new very large building, they absolutely love the lab spaces!  Some of their comments included, "There's so much room!"  "Everything is new and beautiful!"  "This place is awesome!"

Dr. Jeremy Burkett’s Honors General Chemistry Lab attracts students from a variety of majors including chemistry, biochemistry, biology, medical laboratory sciences, and environmental science. Many students report loving this class.  Environmental Science freshman, Gillian Nutter, and Chemistry freshman, Samantha Edwards (top), are among the students who cite this as a favorite class. The pair says the class is going well and they like how quickly and thoroughly they cover the material. Biology freshman, Victoria Provic ,and Biochemistry freshman, Darian Hileman (bottom), say they enjoy the independent nature of the activities.

Dr. Jody Johnson, Adjunct Professor of Chemistry, presented the Susan Slattery Memorial Lecture on Pollinators:  Here Today, Save for Tomorrow.  Dr. Johnson discussed the chemistry and biology involved in pollination and what students can do to help ensure the future of pollination here in Maryland.  Her presentation was very interesting, lively, and well-enjoyed by a large crowd of students, faculty and staff.  

Congratulations to Chemistry Senior, Corinna Carter, on being named the School of the Sciences' Slattery Scholar for 2016-2017!  Corinna was chosen for this honor based on her strong academic performance, and embodying Dr. Susan Slattery's characteristics of ethical behavior, collegiality and giving to the community.  Corinna was honored at the annual Slattery Memorial Lectureship.
