Professor Maria Tamargo is new National Academy of Engineering member. Earlier this year Maria was elected a member of the National Academy of Engineering, for "forging the way toward an inclusive science and engineering research community, and for contributions to molecular-beam epitaxy of semiconductor materials.” This week (Feb 28) at the annual meeting, they introduced the new members and will hold a ceremony in person at next year’s meeting. Congratulations Maria. Read More
Biochemistry M.S. student Carla De La Cruz has won the 2020 Flavor & Extract Manufacturers Association Scholarship Award. Carla works on the mammalian odorant receptors in the Ryan lab. Congratulations Carla.
Ph.D. student Roksana Azad (Biochemistry), a student researcher in the Structural Biology Initiative at the Advanced Science Research Center at The Graduate Center, CUNY (CUNY ASRC), was awarded an F31 Predoctoral Fellowship from the National Institute of Health. The award, of more than $97,000 over three years, will go towards Azad’s tuition and health insurance, and will provide a stipend as well as travel to scientific meetings. Read more here.

4/7/2021: Congratulations to Professor George John, who won the 2021 Edible Application Technology Division Outstanding Achievement Award by the American Oil Chemists' Society. Professor John will describe multifunctional, non-toxic molecular assemblies which heirarchically organize to form 3D structures and solidify oils at the 2021 AOCS Annual Meeting & Expo May 3-14.
3/26/2021: Professor Teresa Bandosz has been awarded a prestigious Japan Society of the Promotion of Science (JSPS) Fellowship in order to conduct research in Japan. She will work at the Sinshu University in Nagano in order to research In-pore confinement-aided utilization of versatile sulfur in energy science. Professor Bandosz's research is in the area of environmental chemistry, in environmental applications of adsorption/desorption phenomena, with the design of new materials for energy related applications, catalysis, gas storage/separation, and photooxidation. She is also Editor for the Journal of Colloid and Interface Science. Says Bandosz: “It’s a great opportunity and I am grateful and honored by the society to take this position and to work with Prof. Kaneko and his research group at Shinshu University, Research Initiative for Supra-Materials, Interdisciplinary Cluster for Cutting Edge Research, on this exiting topic.
