AIChE Receives Three Clean Your Streams Awards October 1, 2014
AIChE participated in the 18th Annual Clean Your Streams river clean-up event September 20. A group of 15 students pulled many bags of trash from Swan Creek including 8 shopping carts which required wading into the water. Their efforts earned them the First Place Award for Collegiate Awesome Effort, the Second Place Award for Collegiate Battle of the Bags, and the Third Place Award for Collegiate Most Volunteers - quite a haul. Congratulations AIChE!
Experiments in Space September 30, 2014
Dr. Schall's protein crystallization experiments were carried to the ISS aboard a SpaceX Dragon capsule. This photo shows the capsule just prior to docking.
Professor Schall's Research Launches to the ISS September 22, 2014
Early September 21, protein crystallization experiments from UT took off from the Kennedy Space Center for the International Space Station, culminating a year of preparation. The research is led by Dr. Schall with co-investigators Drs. Ronning, Mueser, and Hanson as well as three graduate students, Steven Dajnowicz, Michael Banco, and Nandu Yanna. The experiments seek to produce neutron diffraction crystals and are supported by a grant from the Center for the Advancement of Science in Space (CASIS).
