The Vilcek Foundation selected Markita del Carpio Landry (PhD, '12) to receive the Prize for Creative Promise in Biomedical Science, which is one of several foundation prizes celebrating foreign-born leaders in science, dance, and biotechnology.
The Vallee Scholar program appointed six new scholars this year in its continuing mission to provide unrestricted funding for national and international early career researchers at a critical stage in their tenure-track careers.
The exhibit opened in the summer of 2020 and celebrates the invention of MRI by late UIUC chemistry faculty member Paul Lauterbur along with the foundational research that started on campus in the 1940s and 1950s, leading to this world-changing innovation.
Researchers in the Department of Chemistry and the Beckman Institute for Advanced Science and Technology used advanced computational methodologies to successfully simulate the capsid disassembly step of hepatitis B viral infection at an unprecedented atomic level.
Graduate student leaders of several organizations share why they are involved in various Chemistry at Illinois student groups and share advice for first-year graduate students as well as memories of their first year in the PhD program.
In honor of their PhD advisors, Dekai Loo (PhD, ’87, Beak) and Jianjian Zhang (PhD, ’89, Schuster) established scholarships as a way of passing on the support they received from their Illinois chemistry graduate school advisors, the late Peter Beak and Gary Schuster.
Professor Yankwich was internationally recognized for his contributions to three fields of scientific research: the chemical effects of nuclear transformations, the application of radiocarbon tracers to the elucidation of chemical reaction mechanisms, and isotope mass effects on chemical reaction rates. His principal contribution was a long series of experimental and theoretical studies of isotope rate effects.
