This week was Occidental’s summer research conference. We had a great time sharing our work this summer with our peers and learning about what all the other researchers on campus accomplished!
Congratulations to Cannon Lab members of the Occidental College Class of 2017!
Natalie Dwulet is a recipient of a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship, and Nick Foy and Alex Rand were also awarded honorable mention!
All six of Occidental’s awardees this year were chemistry or biochemistry majors!
Molly Brown ’18 is one of this year’s Fletcher Jones Science Scholars at Occidental! This prestigious award will support Molly’s research to develop new carbon-carbon bond forming reactions in our lab for the next year, and allow her to present her discoveries at a national conference of her choice. Congrats!
Our grant application to study enantioselective titanium catalysts for reductive reactions of ketones was funded by the American Chemical Society Petroleum research fund! This grant will help fund more summer researchers to study new methods for carbon-carbon bond formation!
