Grimes receives award from American Chemical SocietyGrimes receives award from American Chemical Society8/26/2022 4:00:00 AM<p>​<strong>Catherine L. </strong><strong>Grimes</strong>, professor in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, is the recipient of the 2022 Horace S. Isbell Award from the American Chemical Society. Presented annually at the spring ACS national meeting, this award<strong> </strong>acknowledges excellence in and promise of continued quality of contribution to research in carbohydrate chemistry. The Grimes Research program focuses on the development and chemical synthesis of small molecule carbohydrate probes that mimic intermediates of bacterial cell wall biosynthesis and bacterial-host immune recognition. The work encompasses a mixture of carbohydrate chemistry, molecular biology and biochemistry to answer questions regarding how the human body senses and responds to the presence of bacteria.</p>Uncropped VerticalGP0|#99d961eb-8936-415c-9024-28a13cec289a;L0|#099d961eb-8936-415c-9024-28a13cec289a|Awards and Honors;GTSet|#0a3b6244-764a-4413-b2f1-4b4c15da868c2022.00000000000https://www.cas.udel.edu/Lists/ForTheRecord/DispForm.aspx?ID=201

Fox’s research focuses on the development of new types of chemical reactions, the application of these reactions to the synthesis of naturally occurring and designed molecules with biological function, and the use of design concepts in organic synthesis for applications in materials science.​<br></p>Uncropped VerticalGP0|#99d961eb-8936-415c-9024-28a13cec289a;L0|#099d961eb-8936-415c-9024-28a13cec289a|Awards and Honors;GTSet|#0a3b6244-764a-4413-b2f1-4b4c15da868c2021.00000000000https://www.cas.udel.edu/Lists/ForTheRecord/DispForm.aspx?ID=118
Teplyakov and Zide recognized by AVSTeplyakov and Zide recognized by AVS;andrewt;zide;9/24/2021 4:00:00 AM<p>​<strong>Andrew Teplyakov</strong>, professor of chemistry and biochemistry, and <strong>Joshua Zide</strong>, professor of materials science and engineering, have been recognized for their research work and “outstanding scientific and technical contributions” by being named 2021 AVS Fellows. Teplyakov’s work focuses on surface functionalization, in which he and his team modify the chemical and physical properties of surfaces. Zide’s research has focused on new materials, namely making thin films of new materials by a technique called molecular beam epitaxy. AVS is an international organization that promotes research in the areas of surface, interface, vacuum and thin film science technology. The honor of fellow is a standing title, as long as Teplyakov and Zide are members of AVS.​<br></p>Uncropped VerticalGP0|#99d961eb-8936-415c-9024-28a13cec289a;L0|#099d961eb-8936-415c-9024-28a13cec289a|Awards and Honors;GTSet|#0a3b6244-764a-4413-b2f1-4b4c15da868c2021.00000000000https://www.cas.udel.edu/Lists/ForTheRecord/DispForm.aspx?ID=99
