We just launched this new CSE web experience. Take a look around and let us know what you think.
The ACS Women Chemists Committee named Associate Professor of Bioinorganic Chemistry Kayla Green as one of 10 recipients of the 2020 Rising Star Award. This award recognizes exceptional early to mid-career female chemists in all areas of chemistry on a national level.
Established in 2011 to help promote the retention of women in science, recipients of this award are invited to an award symposium highlighting their work at the 259th National Meeting of the American Chemical Society in Philadelphia from March 22-26, 2019. Additionally, the winners receive a stipend to cover travel expenses to the symposium.
TCU’s Institute of Behavioral Research is now a part of the College of Science & Engineering. The move stands to align similar missions and create synergy and opportunity for students.
“In my view, the IBR move to CSE is a significant administrative move that will help strengthen TCU’s academic profile and reputation, which aligns directly with the university’s first strategic imperative,” said Kevin Knight, Ph.D., professor and interim director of the Institute for Behavioral Research.
In addition to raising the university profile, Knight said the realignment will increase research opportunities for students in the CSE.
“For example, the IBR SOAR Lab (Student Overview of Applied Research) offers undergraduate students an introduction to applied research, coupled with interactive activities aimed to enhance academic skills,” Knight said. “IBR also provides students with networking and mentoring opportunities with research-interested peers, graduate students and experienced IBR research scientists.”
Phil Hartman, Ph.D., dean of the College of Science & Engineering, said he is thrilled to have IBR within the college.
“The IBR has long been one of TCU’s crown jewels,” he said. “The research funded by the National Institutes of Health that is conducted in the institute has been impactful to our society and aligns directly with TCU’s mission statement of educating leaders to think and act as ethical leaders and responsible citizens.”
