Achievements

In April of 2021, Dr. CJ Stephenson was awarded a Board of Regents Departmental Enhancement grant to purchase new LC-quadrupole instrumentation, enhancing the Department’s analytical capabilities and training. A “triple quad” instrument is the standard for toxicological and environmental analysis in government and private industry, so this instrument, in addition to opening new avenues of research, will provide opportunities for students to get hands-on experience with workplace relevance. Congratulations, Dr. Stephenson!

Dr. Qian Qin has a new publication in the journal Acta Crystallographica. The article, published September 2019, is titled, “Crystal structures of two charge-transfer com-plexes of benzo[1,2- c:3,4- c':5,6- c'']tri-thio-phene ( D 3 h -BTT),” and includes two student authors, Haley Gould (c/o 19?) and Samuel Vasquez (c/o ?)!

Dr. Allyn Schoeffler has a new article in which the authors demonstrate that Three critical regions of the erythromycin resistance methyltransferase, ErmE, are required for function supporting a model for the interaction of Erm family enzymes with substrate rRNA. The article was published in RNA, a publication of the RNA Society.(RNA 2022. 28: 210-226)

Dr. Christine Heinecke has a new publication in Catalysis Letters on the synthesis and testing of two “magic number” clusters, Au102(p-MBA)44 and Au144(p-MBA)60, showing that both clusters are effective catalysts. The article includes three student authors, Nicholas Milosch (c/o 2020, CHEB), Rachel Dufour (c/o 2017, CHEM), and Mario Rodriguez (c/o 2018, CHEB)!

Dr. Garrett Fontenot graduated from Loyola University New Orleans in 2012. He was always interested in studying History, and chose Loyola after touring college campuses and finding the feeling of home here on campus.

Dr. Margaret Peacock is an Associate Professor of History and Director of Undergraduate Studies at University of Alabama. She graduated from Loyola University New Orleans in December of 1994. She originally majored in Political Science, but after taking a German history class with the now retired Dr. Cook, she decided to best know politics you need to know history and changed her major. During her time at Loyola, Dr. Peacock studied abroad in Russia just five months after the fall of the Soviet Union.

A native of Omaha, Nebraska, Sitzman is a scholar-athlete devoting much of her time to swimming and in the classroom as an Environmental Studies (Social Sciences) scholar.  In her role as a NOAA Intern this summer, she will turn her passion for the environment, specifically anything related to weather, water, and climate, into purpose and advance her leadership skills.  She is currently also serving as a Coalition to Restore Coastal Louisiana student ambassador and together with this internship, will develop her Environment Program thesis capstone experience.  Through these experiences and

Rachel was led to Loyola by a high school History teacher in Fort Collins, Colorado who encouraged her to attend college at a Jesuit University to get a well rounded education.
