CBI Training Program
Graduate students in the chemical and biological sciences at Rochester have the opportunity to participate in the NIH-funded Chemistry-Biology Interface (CBI) Training Program. Thirty faculty members from six departments and programs in AS&E and SMD serve as mentors to students participating in the program.
Group ‘Cleaves’ Oxygen from Surface of Metal Oxide, Enhancing Reactivity
The lab of Ellen Matson (left), an assistant professor of chemistry, has developed a new method of opening solid state materials to oxygenation, using metallic oxide clusters, which can eliminate guesswork from discovery of new catalysts. The ultimate goal is to more efficiently convert greenhouse gases to useful fuels. PhD student Brittney Petel (right) is lead author of the paper describing the discovery.Read More
