Siamak Shokri, Ph.D. candidate in chemistry, won a Best Poster Award at the 27th Inter-American Photochemical Society Meeting in Sarasota, Florida, January 2-5. His adviser is Jean-Luc Ayitou, assistant professor of chemistry. Shokri won for his poster “Synthesis, Optoelectronic...
Jean-Luc Ayitou, assistant professor of chemistry, has won the Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Award from the National Science Foundation, Division of Chemistry: Chemical Structure, Dynamics and Mechanisms. The award, totaling $650,000 for five years, is for his research on novel...
Russell Betts, dean of the College of Science and Distinguished Professor of Physics, recently honored four people with Dean’s Excellence Awards. Senior Research Faculty: Fred Hickernell, professor of applied mathematics and director of the new Center for Interdisciplinary Scientific...
Assistant Professor of Chemistry A. Jean-Luc Ayitou has published the article “Photon Upconversion Using Baird-Type (Anti)Aromaticity Quinoidal Naphthalene Derivative as a Sensitizer” in the Journal of Physical Chemistry C. Photon upconversion is the conversion of low-energy radiation to...
Much like weather forecast models predict the trajectory of a hurricane, computational tools known as molecular dynamics simulations predict the microscopic motion of an interacting system of molecules. Molecular dynamics has sometimes been referred to as a “computational microscope” because it...
Xiyun (Richard) Guan has received a three-year, $360,000 grant from the National Science Foundation for his project “Solid-state nanopore-based MMP/ADAM profiling for early cancer detection.” The award is to develop next-generation biomaterials to help detect and treat cancer. Guan develops...
Carlo Segre, Duchossois Leadership Professor of Physics and interim chair of the Department of Chemistry, recently had his endowed chair renewed for another three-year term. The chair honors faculty who are exemplary in scholarship, education, and service. As Duchossois Leadership Professor, Segre...
The research groups of Oscar Juarez, assistant professor of biology, and David Minh, assistant professor of chemistry, have discovered a new structural motif in an essential Vibrio cholerae enzyme that could lead to important drug development. The increasing threat from multi-drug-...
Andrey Rogachev, assistant professor of chemistry, and his research group discovered an efficient tool for fine-tuning magnetic coupling between delocalized radicals. This research is a continuation of previous research the group has done on quantum chemical investigations of fullerene fragments or...
The College of Science has chosen eight students to receive this year’s CoS undergraduate summer research stipends. The selected students, nominated by Illinois Tech faculty, will each earn $5,000 for 10 weeks of research with Illinois Tech faculty members this summer. The stipends are funded...
