Fall 2019 Chemistry Newsletter
Welcome to Fall 2019! We start this new academic year with hope, renewal, and reflection. We’ve gained new colleagues in the Department and are excited for their contributions, and we’ve also lost a dear faculty member even as his legacy carries on. The students, staff, and faculty continue to make this Department special, and their achievements are inspiring and impressive. I hope you enjoy their stories. New to this quarterly newsletter, we’ve added some highlights to showcase the breadth and impact of our research. Enjoy our latest happenings!
