 Chair’s Notes



Dear friends,

After a bit of a hiatus, the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry’s alumni newsletter is back. We hope to issue this publication on a quarterly basis in order to keep you all informed of the latest developments in the department and with our alumni. While it’s easy enough for us to report on departmental happenings, we are counting on you, our alumni, to keep us informed of your accomplishments. Simply send an email to our assistant chair, Mary Prorok (, and we will be happy to incorporate items of interest into future newsletters. For now, enjoy this first installment of our newsletter and please stay in touch! 

Kenneth Henderson,

Chair, Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry
