Confidence and Perspective: In-Depth Crystallography Training Restructures Two Young Researchers’ View of Their Work: Abhishek Ravada, University of Rennes 1 and Damola Taye Shuaib, Illinois Institute of Technology
Damola Shuaib and Abhishek Ravada were the recipients of the 2019 Graduate Student Research Award at ChemMatCARS. In six weeks of learning side by side, the two very different men—one a passionate chemist from his earliest studies, the other an equally passionate nonchemist—found challenge, and camaraderie, in their differences. Interacting with the stream of...
Faculty-student team from University of Illinois at Chicago designs lipid-based drug delivery systems
Associate Professor Ying Liu and two of her doctoral students, Tiep Pham and Paola León-Plata, had an idyllic summer. They traded their busy urban campus at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) for six weeks on the Argonne prairie, where they could focus on thinking about new science. “It’s like a mini-sabbatical,” said Liu, wistful about the rare gift of...
