The Bonizzoni group received funding from the National Science Foundation to participate in the development of polymer-based sensing technologies relevant to Gulf Coast water monitoring (NSF Award #1632825). The award, consisting of a total of $4,000,000, will bring together eleven research groups from five campuses in Alabama and Mississippi, under the aegis of the NSF EPSCoR program.
Michele Invernici, a graduate student from the University of Pavia coming to UA on an exchange fellowship, just started work in our group. Welcome Michele!
Michael Ihde, a first-year graduate student in our group, was awarded the third prize at the 6th Annual Lester Andrews Graduate Research Symposium held at Mississippi State University, for his talk titled "A minimal sensor array for metal ion detection in water". Congratulations Michael!
Ashley and Xiaoli were both recognized today during our departmental Chemistry Honors ceremony. Ashley won the Outstanding Dissertation award, and Xiaoli the Outstanding Second Year Graduate Student award. Congratulations to both!
