The Pedagogical Program Coordinator will provide leadership and direction in the management of our department's chemistry courses and will be responsible for ensuring these classes operate efficiently.
Alex Zhukhovitskiy, assistant professor of chemistry, is the recipient of the National Science Foundation’s Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Award. The award recognizes individuals who have the potential to serve as academic role models in research and education and to lead advances in the mission of their department.
Carolina Chemistry’s annual Fall Banquet celebrates the achievements and strides made by juniors and seniors majoring in chemistry. Awards are presented to students who demonstrate excellence in their studies and research. Click to view the awardees.
Graduate students in the Department of Physics and Astronomy and in the Department of Chemistry pioneered a peer-mentorship initiative, alongside The Graduate School’s professional development program, in order to better serve incoming graduate students.
To tackle this challenge in the context of 19F magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) agents, we pursued a computer-guided materials discovery approach that combines synergistic innovations in automated flow synthesis and machine learning (ML) method development.
This analysis shows that (i) there is only a small fraction of free counterions, f* < 12%; (ii) divalent ions have a strong effect on the renormalization of the excluded volume, reducing it by a factor of 2; and (iii) the effect of divalent counterions is much weaker on the renormalization of the Kuhn length, accounting for an increase of up to 10%.
Here, we propose an experimental setting enabling simultaneous fast-scan cyclic voltammetry (FSCV) and blood oxygenation level-dependent functional magnetic imaging (BOLD fMRI) to measure both local tissue oxygen and dopamine responses, and global BOLD changes, respectively.
