The semester is quickly coming to a close and attention is shifting to final projects and final exams. This was a good opportunity for the group to reflect on the semester over delicious donuts from Union Square Donuts! Research students talked about learning new chemistry and getting to really get comfortable working with new instruments such as ICP-AES, NMR, qPCR, and more. Everyone was happy with progress made on research projects, but we all know that leads to new goals and new aspirations for the next experiment. The seniors are starting to talk about jobs and grad programs. New sophomore research students are reading literature and learning the ropes. We’re all really excited for the chance to get to the ACS conference in San Diego in March!
It’s been a great semester and we can’t wait for what comes next.
