This year's Undergraduate Research Showcase was held in-person on April 19th. The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry was well represented during the poster sessions, and chemistry major Lindsey Jenkins from Dr. Cyran's lab was one of 15 students selected to give a lightning talk about her research on discovering the unique properties of the environmental pollutants know as "forever chemicals."

Congratulations to Konrad Meister and his BioIce Lab group on another grant award!! Their project "Unraveling the Molecular Basis for Superior Ice Nucleation Activity" will be funded over the next three years by a Department of Defense DEPSCoR (Defense Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research) grant. This award is one of 25 given to collaborative teams across the country to pursue science and engineering research relevant to the DoD.

Shout out to Konrad Meister for all of his exciting accomplishments over the past few months! He and graduate student Rosemary Eufemio returned from a research expedition in Greenland on the National Geographic ship Endurance, the findings of which were published. He collaborated with other faculty and the Center for Visual Arts to create the Boise State Arts and Sciences Hub (BASH), he's been a featured presenter at Lost Grove Brewing's "Science on Tap," and he was just recently awarded two grants totaling more than $1.2 million! Keep up the amazing work!

One of the best parts of working in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry is being part of a team that tackles challenges together.
Some of our employees joined together as "The Rate Limiting Steppers" and completed a 5k together for the Famous Idaho Potato Run. It was a beautiful day spent with wonderful people!

Department Chair Owen McDougal recently had the opportunity to see our great state from a few thousand feet in the air. He joined Chemistry Graduate student Mark Skinner for a "Boss Lift" in a Blackhawk helicopter, and also met with some of the state's top Army and Air Guard leadership. Mark is currently a member of the Army National Guard and serves as the first sergeant for the state of Idaho's joint force headquarters (JFHQ). The "Boss Lift" activities, put on a couple of times each year by the ESGR (Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve), are intended to show local employers and civilians some of the things our weekend soldiers do as part of their service as a guard member. Thank you for your service Mark!!

Last Friday's Seminar featured presentations from our CHEM498 class. Danielle Ali talked about her work on Aziridinomitosenes and the formation of DNA-Protein Crosslinks. Taylor Koch and Keaton Poe presented their research using Cold Atmospheric-Pressure Plasmas. Taylor is using CAP as a way to kill bacteria on industrial surfaces, especially in the food industry. Keaton is using the technology to develop a new method for treating chronic wounds. Great work seniors!!
