Congratulations to Matthew Pratt
Prof. Matthew Pratt has been recognized as the 2015 recipient of the David Y. Gin New Investigator Award by the Carbohydrate Division of the American Chemical Society. This award acknowledges and encourages outstanding contributions to research in carbohydrate chemistry by scientists in the first seven years of their independent career. He will be receiving this award at the spring ACS meeting in Denver.

Congratulations to Andrey Vilesov
Andrey Vilesov led a team that used the Stanford X-ray free electron laser to image droplets of liquid helium.
The work, described in an August 22 article in Science magazine, reports quantum vortices and extreme deformation of liquid droplets and sheds light on superfluidity at the nanoscale.
