Teri Odom professional headshot

Happy New Year and welcome to our Winter newsletter! We look forward to building on our full and rewarding 2023 that included research gains in energy and catalysis, cancer vaccines, and electronic and photonic devices. We also hosted many distinguished guests who delivered inspiring lectures in honor of our eminent emeriti faculty. Please enjoy the profiles of members in our community who make our Department so special as well as recent news of our impact on important societal problems in sustainability and human health. Finally, 2024 marks 50 years after our dear colleague Mark Ratner helped to introduce the pioneering concept of molecular electronics, which paved the way for our leading role in establishing nanotechnology years later. I hope you enjoy our latest happenings.
