Welcome to our Spring Newsletter! We are glad to experience the season with snow-filled days interspersed with clear skies and warm days and spring flowers. The Department continues to make important research contributions in removing forever chemicals, treating neurodegenerative diseases, and developing long-lasting solar cell materials. Our faculty have been honored with accolades for their work in improving human health and the environment; our graduate students and postdoctoral fellows have been recognized for their leadership and service activities; and our staff members have been praised for their excellent service in numerous areas critical to the mission of the Department. I hope that you enjoy these highlights as well as the stories of those in our community that make Northwestern Chemistry such a special place.
