Congratulations to Kun Yang of the Greenberg group on his publication in PNAS entitled “Histone Tails Decrease N7-Methyl-2′-Deoxyguanosine Depurination and Yield DNA–Protein Cross-links in Nucleosome Core Particles and Cells” that was highlighted in C&EN News.
Congratulations to Sam Goldschmid and Avery Baumann for winning the Best Poster Award and Best Speaker Award, respectively, at the Young Researcher Conference hosted by Alliance for Diversity for Science and Engineering! Avery was one of six student speakers and Sam was competing with both graduate and undergraduate students.
The McQueen Lab reports the observation of inherent structural disorder in pyrochlores. The universality of local displacements within the pyrochlore structure adds to the known structural diversity and explains the extreme sensitivity to composition found in quantum spin ices and the lack of ferroelectric behavior in pyrochlores.

Congratulations to Prof. Hernandez and his postdoc Dr. Rakesh Singh, for having their article published in the newest edition of Chemical Physics Letters. Their research has been featured on the cover of the September 16th issue. Singh and Hernandez have shown that a simplified stochastic model can be used to describe the structure of hard-core soft shell […]
Congratulations to prof. Rigoberto Hernandez for being selected as the winner for the 2018 SERMACS Stan Israel Award! The Stanley C. Israel Regional Award recognizes individuals and/or institutions who have advanced diversity in the chemical sciences and significantly stimulated or fostered activities that promote inclusiveness within the region.
Congratulations to Avery Baumann for being selected as one of six student speakers at the 5th Young Researcher Conference hosted by the Alliance for Diversity in Science and Engineering (ADSE)! Avery will be speaking on Sept 29th at UMD College Park.
Congratulations to Desta Bume, Stefan Harry, and Cody Ross Pitts of the Lectka Group for their paper entitled “Catalyzed and Promoted Aliphatic Fluorination” (J. Org. Chem. 2018, 83, 8803) and its associated cover art. Metro systems in German speaking parts of Europe are often termed U-bahns, in which trains glide primarily within underground tunnels along branching and […]
Congratulations to Huabing Sun and Liwei Zheng of the Greenberg lab, whose article “Independent Generation of Reactive Intermediates Leads to an Alternative Mechanism for Strand Damage Induced by Hole Transfer in Poly(dA−T) Sequences” was just published in the Journal of the American Chemical Society.
The Chemistry Student Safety Committee (ChemSSC) was created to promote a culture of safety in our chemistry department, as well as to address known safety issues occurring in the laboratories. ChemSSC has subcommittees dedicated to specific goals, including raising awareness of the chemistry student safety committee and specific safety issues to the rest of the […]
