Seminar Postponed due to weather

In light of the predicted overnight snow (5-8″ according to most info we’ve seen), we have decided the postpone the seminar for tomorrow in case interested students, faculty and our guest have difficulty getting to campus. For example, students and faculty might need to stay home with their children if their schools close (and some local schools are closing).

Stay tuned for a new date!

As far as we know, DePaul will be open and running as usual tomorrow. It’s Chicago winter weather! Check your email and D2L sites for any class-specific information. That said, be safe tomorrow if you have to drive.

New Chemistry Seminar Starts This Friday!

We are very very excited for the start of our new bi-weekly Chemistry Seminar Series, organized by Dr. Charles Rubert Perez! Presentations will be made by professors from DePaul and other universities, as well as by students who are defending their theses. The first seminar will be a crash-course on Cryo-EM, the powerful technique that was central to the 2017 Nobel Prize in Chemistry.

TEM is a powerful technique capable of taking images of biological samples at the micro and nano-level scale. With the development of cryogenic sample preparation and molecular modeling software, this method can now elucidate structural information with low armstrong resolution, similar to x-ray crystallography. This talk will cover a short introduction on cryo-TEM and how it works, highlighting the contribution of Dr. Frank, Dr. Dubochet and Dr. Henderson, the winners of the 2017 Nobel Prize in Chemistry.

Here’s a facebook event for the seminar to share with your friends.

Following that, we will have guest seminars from Loyola professors on Feb 9 and 23rd, all in McGowan South 103 at 1 pm. Put the dates on your calendar!
