Farewell to a good friend and leader: A retrospective on the career of FIU founding faculty and founding chair of the Department of Chemistry, Dr. Leonard S. Keller.
The coating used on the fabric was invented by FIU Provost and Executive Vice President Kenneth G. Furton and chemistry researcher Abuzar Kabir who are co-authors of the study.
"The new analytical development will increase the number of molecules that can be examined six-fold, giving scientists a more detailed look into the chemical changes crude oil undergoes in a spill,” said Paolo Benigni, Ph.D. candidate in FIU’s Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry and lead author of the study. “This work opens the door to answering complex chemical questions about how molecules change in the environment.”
Worlds Ahead biochemistry Ph.D. graduate Jill Beaver has been awarded an AAAS Science and Technology Policy Fellowship at the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
Provost Kenneth Furton uses his forensic expertise in scent detection for contemporary art exhibit at New York City’s Guggenheim Museum.
FIU students Alexander Bolufer and Anthony Castellanos from Dr Francisco Fernandez-Lima research group obtained the Second place for Poster presentations during the FAME 2017 meeting, held in Tarpon Springs, FL.
Two chemistry students, Michael Perez and Robert Wood are being recognized as Worlds Ahead Students. Both students are dual majors: Michael in Biology and Chemistry; Robert in Psychology and Chemistry. Congratulations!
Congratulations to Haixiang Yu, student in the Biochemistry Ph.D. Program, for winning the UGS Provost Award for Graduate Student Outstanding Paper or Manuscript in STEM.
