Our organic research lab is dedicated to the synthesis of novel biologically active natural products. We are a relatively small research group usually consisting of one masters student and two undergraduates.
Welcome to the group Christine Yeo BS '14 who begins work in the lab fall 2012.
What a hot and humid summer! Austin Kelly was funded through Dr. Seth Hubbard's project on Solar Cells and stayed through the summer working on this collaborative project. Austin presented his work as a poster at the Undergradauet Symposium August 2012. Anthony Carestia was funded through a Pasto Fellowship to continue his work this past summer and then presented his work in a talk at the Undergraduate Symposium in August. Jennifer Swartzenberg completed the synthesis of her piece on Trocheliophorolide A and the coupling commences. Danielle Raymond started her graduate program at the University of Rochester. We'll miss you! Katherine Valentine was hired by the department to perform analytical work on the department's PlumPox project.
Welcome to the group Austin Kelly BS '14 and Katherine Valentine BS '14. Both have started working in the lab this spring 2012.
Our very own Danielle Raymond MS '12 was selected as the graduate student delegate from the College of Science to speak at commencement. Congratulations on this honor Danielle!
Congratulations to Anthony Carestia '13 who was awarded a Pasto Undergraduate Research Fellowship to continue his research during the summer 2012 at RIT in the Collison group.
Congratualtions Danielle Raymond MS '12 on the completion of the probe synthesis! This certainly calls for a celebration.
It's the beginning of the 2011-2012 academic school year! The lab is slated to move to the third floor by the end of Septemeber. Dr. Collison's office is already up on the third floor now and we're excited about the extra lab space. Especially the extra hood!
The summer of 2011 was a very fun summer in the lab! Anthony Carestia, Danille Raymond and Jenn Swartzenberg all stayed at RIT and conducted full-time research. It was our last Collison group summer in the basement of Gosnell. We're looking forward to getting lots done when the lab moves upstairs. Anthony gave his first undergraduate poster of his research at the Annual Undergraduate RIT Symposium in August.
Congratulations to Anthony Carestia! Anthony is a recipient of the 2011 Glaxo Smith Kline Undergraduate SUmmer Research Fellowship and will be working on the Trocheliophorolide A project over the summer in our lab. Fantatstic job Anthony!
