NIH Funding

As of today, our nanoparticle-oriented project, "Functionalized Gold Nanoconjugates: Understanding the Mechanism of Protein Binding," is being funded by the NIH (R15). Congratulations everyone on your hard work!


Thoughts on New Year's Resolutions

One of the websites I read when I get the chance is, an online humor magazine. While cracked bills itself as a humor site, there are often useful tidbits of information there. One of the traditions on the site is re-posting a popular article written by Jason Pargin (aka "David Wong") entitled "6 Harsh Truths That Will Make You a Better Person." It was originally published in 2012 and has been reprinted every year since.


Biochemistry Boot Camp

Once again, we are offering "Biochemistry Boot Camp" this year to teach undergraduates the common tools they will need to perform their summer research. A limited number of slots are available to students outside of the MSU community. Please take a look at this announcement, and get in touch with Dr. Fitzkee if you are interested.


Chemistry Awards Banquet

Congratulations to Ailin and Tam, who both won awards at the Chemistry Banquet last night. Ailin won the award for outstanding biochemistry researcher, and Tam won for outstanding 4th year undergraduate. We're proud of their hard work, and this recognition is well-deserved.


Congratulations to Yue!

Yue successfully defended his Masters' thesis today, entitled "Assessing NMR-based Studies of Denatured Proteins using Non-Random Structural Ensembles." Yue did a stellar job, and he will be staying on in the lab to earn his Ph.D. Congratulations, Yue!
