    Remembering Sarah Tooth, 1988-2014

    Sarah Tooth a Queen's Chemistry Graduate (B.Sc. Honours 2009) was a wonderful class mate, a bright student and a curious researcher. Despite falling very ill in her last year of studies she completed her Honours degree at Queen's and, after a short while, pursed graduate studies at Rice University, Houston, TX. At Rice she completed a M.A. and M. Stat. and was enrolled in their Ph.D. program. On Oct. 30th Sarah left us after a long and courageous battle with cancer.

    Dr. Guojun Liu's research is highlighted in the ACS Chemical & Engineering News

    Drs Guojun Liu and Heng Hu have made nanosized polymer capsules with built-in channels that release the particles' payload when triggered by a high pH. The nanocapsules could be useful for the controlled delivery of drug molecules and proteins of specific sizes inside the body. Their research was recently published on Macromolecules and highlighted in the ACS Chemical & Engineering News.
