Our fourth-year chemical biology students recently presented seminars to the department. "Similar to years past, the quality of the talks was top-notch, and the diversity of chemical biology research presented was broad," Professor and Path Chair Helen Blackwell says. Michelle Boursier (Blackwell group) and Visham Appadoo (Lynn group) ultimately were selected as the Chemical Biology Seminar Day Student Award-winners.
Staff members Stephen Block and Jim Zernicke recently were honored with College of Letters & Science excellence awards. Read on to learn why:

There's been a steam line break near the Chemistry Department tonight. The fix requires shutting down steam to the Daniels and Mathews buildings, which will result in the fans going off, and heat going down. Please avoid going into the building tonight until Jeff Nielsen sends an ALL Clear. Shain should be fine, but if you are in, please avoid going between the buildings, to minimize heat loss. This should not be a life-safety issue unless the fans need to be off for several hours.
