Chemistry and Biochemistry News

This summer, Biochemistry sophomore, Kayla Bynion, is an intern at the Johns Hopkins Neurosurgery Clinic.  Here's what she shared: "I am working with renowned neurosurgeon Dr. Alfredo Quiñones-Hinojosa, or as most people like to call him, Dr. Q. There is so much to love about this incredible opportunity. I have been able to see all aspects of what it is really like to work in a hospital. I have helped to schedule appointments and various tests for patients, shadowed some of Dr. Q’s clinicals, and most recently, I was able to assist with multiple pre-ops and scrub in to observe several brain surgeries. Dr. Q has taught me so much about not only the clinical work of a doctor, but also how to interact with patients and other valuable life skills which will help me as I advance in my education.  I have loved every minute of my experience and it has helped me decide that I really do want to pursue a career in medicine."

Students and faculty who are participating in our Summer Science Scholars Research Program (S3RP) recently attended an Orioles game to cheer on the O's.  A great time was had by all as the Orioles won the game against the Texas Rangers 4-2!

Freshman Mark Moody really enjoyed his Honors General Chemistry and General Biology courses this year. He reported that he received a great foundation in these fundamental science courses.  Mark liked the end of year Honors Chemistry demonstrations.  His Mushroom Cloud experiment showed the process of sublimation (when a solid transitions to a gas without going through the liquid state) of dry ice to gaseous CO2

In her Honors General Chemistry demonstration, Chemistry freshman Janaya Slaughter showed the different colors that resulted when acidic and basic solutions were combined in beakers with different indicators. Janaya had a great first year at SU.  She came to SU for the BS/MS program in chemistry and forensic sciences and is excited to pursue a career in this area.

Congratulations to Chris Griffin on receiving the Chemistry Department’s Service Award at the May Celebration!  Chris was recognized for his dedication to participating in department events, including serving as a Supplemental Instruction Leader and tutor to many students.
