Ned Sibert is an expert in theoretical chemistry, which, rather than using hands-on experiments, uses math and computational tools to study and make predictions about chemical systems and their properties.
Randall Goldsmith, whose work enables insights on a number of issues in science, is among the 13 U.S. early-career faculty members in the chemical sciences to win a 2017 Camille Dreyfus Teacher-Scholar Award.
Ophelia Venturelli's research may lead to the ability to engineer behaviors among beneficial microbes in the gut ecosystem, which could be used to enhance their resilience to invasion by pathogens or unintended impairment from antibiotics.
From March 1 to April 30, participating students will work to grow large and high quality crystals from safe, common materials.
The second most-produced organic chemical in the world, propene is a key component of plastics found in consumer goods such as electronics, clothing and food packaging.
As scientists continue finding evidence for life in the ocean more than 3 billion years ago, those ancient fossils pose a paradox that raises questions about whether there was more land mass than previously thought.
The new method gives chemists prospecting for bioactive molecules a new tool in the search for novel drugs or chemicals for agriculture.
Functional human collagen has been impossible to create in the lab. Now, a team of University of Wisconsin–Madison researchers describe what may be the key to growing functional, natural collagen fibers outside of the body: symmetry.
Mitochondrial diseases strike about 1 in 4,000 people and there are currently no licensed therapies available beyond treatments with vitamins and supplements.
"We get two for the price of one," says researcher Shannon Stahl, "and we can save half a volt ... In a fuel cell, that is significant saving of energy."
