Chong is invited to give a Nanoscience Global Lecture webinar presented by Nano Letters on Oct. 23rd, along with Prof. Tao Zhang from the Chinese Academy of Sciences and Prof. Naomi Halas from Rice University. Feel free to register here.
In celebration of the upcoming 20th anniversary of the journal, the Nano Letters team is excited to announce the launch of the new Nanoscience Global Lecture. This monthly series features engaging talks from leaders across nanoscience research highlighting exciting nanoscience progress. Each event will include two featured talks as well as a talk from an early career researcher.
Oct. 23rd lecture is the second in its series. The first one took place on Sep. 25, 2020, featuring Prof. Paul Alivisatos, Prof. Steven Chu, and Prof. Laura Na Liu as the speakers.
Chong and other Scialog fellows will join a conference that explores how to advance fundamental science in the design of novel approaches for rapidly removing and utilizing or sequestering greenhouse gases. As of 2020, this conference will be held virtually.
Last but not least, the Liu Group receives the NIH NIGMS R35 Maximizing Investigators’ Research Award (MIRA), titled as “Spatiotemporal control of concentration gradients with electrochemistry in extracellular space”. This is a 5-year project about our foray into the interface between electrochemistry and microbiology!
We are grateful for all the research support! Check out our exciting research progresses in the years to come!
The NSF Center for Integrated Catalysis is supported by the Centers for Chemical Innovation (CCI) program of the NSF Division of Chemistry. With a 3-year 1.8 M support, we aim to develop the fundamental chemistry needed to prepare synthetic plastics from pools of abundant feedstocks in a single reactor using spatially separated and temporally switchable catalysts. Looking forward to the exciting synergy that we have for chemical catalysis!
The press release at UCLA Chemistry & Biochemistry is here.
The fellowship is intended to support doctoral students who are within one year of completing and filing their dissertation. It includes a $20,000 stipend plus standard tuition and fees (excluding nonresident tuition). Each year, approximately 200 Dissertation Year Fellowships (DYF) are awarded to UCLA graduate students who are nominated for the fellowship by their department.
Undergraduate Shuyuan (Scarlett) Huang receives the departmental Ramsey Commencement Award for Excellence in Research. This honor is given in recognition of Scarlett’s outstanding excellence in research and academic achievements during the course of her undergraduate studies. Congratulations!
The awards are normally presented to students at the department’s annual awards ceremony and at Commencement, both of which have been postponed until later in the 2020-21 academic year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The department will be honoring our graduating students through virtual celebrations in June.
