Congratulations to Professor Bradforth
We are pleased to announce that Steve Bradforth has been named a Fellow of the APS. This recognition is "for applying femtosecond and photoelectron spectroscopies to gain better understanding of electronic interactions that guide chemical reaction dynamics in the condensed phase."

Congratulations to Terry Takahashi
Professor Terry Takahashi is the PI of a recently granted Department of Defense CDMRP award. The goal of project is to generate molecules that can be used as a treatment for Neuroblastoma by interfering with the function of a protein called N-myc. Neuroblastoma is the most common cancer found in children outside of the head and causes ~15% of all childhood cancer deaths.  In addition, Terry along with Professor Rich Roberts are investigators on a recently announced multi-investigator Imaging Research Award sponsored by GE Healthcare. The goal of this second grant is to develop small, protease resistant peptides for PET imaging of immune checkpoint receptors.

Congratulations to Professor Moh-El Naggar
Congratulations to Professor Moh-El Naggar on being named the Robert D Beyer ('81) Early Career Chair in Natural Sciences.
