Rachel Keunen and Adam Zajdlik are Recipients of the Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarships 2014/15

These scholarships are part of an elite federal program for developing research capacity through supporting highly motivated and competitive doctoral students, thereby helping them to achieve their full potential and develop their careers, while also taking into account volunteer and community outreach work that they are involved with. Rachel Keunenís research focuses on designing nanoparticles, looking at the synthesis of block copolymers and their self-assembly to form rigid rod-like block copolymer micelles, to allow collaborators to use these micelles as a drug-delivery vehicle. Her community outreach work involves ... more

Malcolm Bersohn 1925-2014

It is with great sadness that we announce the death of our colleague, Prof. Malcom Bersohn. Malcom was a generous and well-liked member of the Department. He graduated from Harvard in 1943, and following service in China with the U.S. Army he completed a Ph. D. at Columbia University in 1960 with Prof. Gilbert Stork. After a brief appointment at the California Research Corporation, he joined our department in 1962. He retired in 1990, and was an active Professor Emeriti since that time, working on the development of computer programs for the design of organic synthetic pathways.
