Chemistry and Biochemistry News


Everyone is very excited about our new building on the Owings Mills North Campus.  Here are some pictures of our new labs!  They are going to be amazing!  

(Graduate Assistant Shelby Litz was part of our tour and we couldn't resist including her in one of the pictures!)

This week is Undergraduate Research Week, a week sponsored by The Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR).  CUR is spotlighting the National Conference on Undergraduate Research (NCUR), which took place last week and over the weekend at the University of North Carolina Asheville.  The mission of NCUR is to promote undergraduate research, scholarship, and creative activity done in partnership with faculty or other mentors as a vital component of higher education.  Biochemistry seniors Ciara Faupel, Alicia Greene and Zoe Singman all presented their research at the conference.  Special thanks to SU for funding this amazing trip! 

Three biochemistry majors are part of a group of faculty and students who represented Stevenson at the National Conference on Undergraduate Research at UNC-Asheville. Our students will be among the 4,000 from across the country presenting their research.

Biochemistry senior, Chris Toth (top picture, third from right) did what he usually does on Spring Break- he headed to New Orleans to help out!  Chris was one of 37 Stevenson students who traveled to New Orleans as part of the SU club, Mission: I'm Home.  The club partnered with Habitat for Humanity and with the Saint Bernard Project in order to rebuild homes or build new homes in response to the destruction from Hurricane Katrina. 

The site that Chris worked on was an opportunity house, which is a new home built for a resident of New Orleans to move into after being displaced. Chris worked on insulating the house (bottom picture) and hanging new drywall throughout the home. 

What an amazing experience and a wonderful opportunity to help others!


Everyone continues to have a great time at the ACS meeting in San Diego.  The students presented a demonstration of one of the SU chemical experiments.  They were joined by the ACS student club from Puerto Rico.  It was exciting meeting new people and sharing experiences!
