Achievements

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. Qian Qin was awarded a Louisiana Board of Regents Research and Development grant of over $120,000 to study new organic superconducting materials from sulfur-rich aromatic molecules. This funding will support Dr. Qin’s productive undergraduate research program. Congratulations!

Congratulations to CHFS 2021 graduates Kirsten Turner and Quynh Dang, accepted to graduate programs at Boston College and George Washington University!

Congratulations to alumna Dayla Rich (c/o 2017, CHFS) on graduating from the University of South Carolina with her PhD in Analytical Chemistry and joining the FBI’s Huntsville laboratory as a Chemist!

Congratulations to alumna Julia Falco (c/o 2016, CHFS ) on graduating from Boston College with her PhD in Chemical Biology!

Congratulations to alumna Kanda Borgognoni (c/o 2016, CHEB ) on graduating from Colorado State University with her PhD and joining the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow!

Dr. Allyn Schoeffler was awarded $89,000 from the Louisiana Board of Regents' Research Competitiveness Subprogram grant to study molecular determinants of specialization in bacterial topoisoemerases from extreme environments. The funding will support Dr. Schoeffler’s undergraduate research in biochemistry, in which research students will investigate how molecular machines function in hot and cold environments through wet-lab and online bioinformatic analyses.

Congratulations to alumna Mary Claire Kramer (c/o 2017, CHEB) on graduating from the JD program at Loyola University College of Law! Mary Claire continues to work in the Immigration Section of the Stuart H. Smith Law Clinic for Social Justice.

Dr. Anna S. Duggar has a new publication on the use of plasma cleaning for the preparation of soil minerals for forensic comparison by photon and electron microscopy. The article was published in the Journal of Forensic Science (Duggar & Kubic, 66: 1452-1463) July 2021

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 20)!
