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!
Xiaoli was selected to be a Graduate Council Fellow for the 2016-17 academic year, in recognition of her outstanding work in our graduate program. Congratulations Xiaoli!
Dr. Bonizzoni delivered an invited talk on the group's recent research on the interaction of hydrophobics with cationic polyelectrolytes at the 2015 Physical Organic Chemistry Gordon Research Conference held at Holderness School, Holderness, NH.
Nick White, a graduate student in our group, was awarded the first prize in the poster competition for his poster presentation titled "Small-Molecule Models of Poly(amidoamine) Dendrimers" at the 5th Annual Lester Andrews Graduate Research Symposium held at Mississippi State University. Congratulations Nick!
Kyle Glisson, an undergraduate researcher in our group, was awarded the Randall Outstanding Research Award by our Honors College for his calorimetric studies on the interactions of PAMAM dendrimers with anions in water. Congratulations Kyle!
