- Pjotr Roest (Batey Group), 3rd place, Oral Competition, Organic Division
Welcome to New Faculty Members Mark Wilson and Andrew Beharry
Professor Mark Wilson joins the Department on the St. George campus as a new faculty member in experimental physical chemistry and nanoscience. The Wilson Lab will use spectroscopy to reveal and understand the properties of excitonic materials, and chart the flow of excitonic energy in multi-component architectures. They will apply this knowledge to build novel optoelectronic devices—particularly those that will allow functionality in the short-wave infrared.
Professor Andrew Beharry joins the University of Toronto Mississauga (UTM), where his research program will focus on the development of chemical probes to solve problems in cancer biology. The Beharry Lab will use chemistry to design and construct molecules, test them biochemically/biophysically in vitro then apply them in live-cells and animals, with the goal of developing new cancer diagnostic tools and treatment platforms that will ultimately improve cancer prognosis.
