Dr. Crudden won the 2019 Arthur C. Cope Scholar Award, Congratulations!

Dr. Cathleen CruddenCongratulations to Dr. Cathleen Crudden on winning the 2019 Arthur C. Cope Scholar Award! This national ACS award is given “to recognize and encourage excellence in organic chemistry.” The recognition of Cathy’s contributions is especially remarkable because non-Americans typically don’t receive this award. Another recent exception was Andrew Evans winning this award in 2017 as one of the first Canadians in the 32-year history of the award. Also, in 2001 Victor Snieckus was the second Canadian Arthur C. Cope Scholar (after Keith Ingold, 1992).

    Introducing Dr. Peng Wang to the Department of Chemistry

    Peng WangWe would like to welcome Dr. Peng Wang who joined the Department as an Assistant Professor. After the completion of his Ph.D. work, Dr. Wang spent his time as a postdoctoral researcher investigating materials for detecting and identifying radioactive sources. Before starting at Queen’s University, Dr. Wang held a scientist position in Canadian semiconductor industry. Dr. Wang will be focusing his area of teaching around inorganic material chemistry, while the overarching theme of my research is the electrical and optical properties of novel crystalline compounds.

    Introducing Dr. Chantelle J. Capicciotti, Queen’s National Scholar in Precision Molecular Medicine

    Chantelle CapicciottiWe would like to welcome Dr. Chantelle J. Capicciotti to the Department. Dr. Capicciotti joins the Departments of Chemistry, Biomedical and Molecular Sciences and Surgery in July 2018 as a Queen’s National Scholar in Precision Molecular Medicine. Her areas of teaching are in organic chemistry, biochemistry, and chemical biology with specialization in carbohydrate chemistry and glycobiology. Her research interests are in the field of glycobiology focusing on understanding how glycans/glycoproteins interact with proteins on a cellular level to elicit biological responses, as well as on developing glycan-based approaches for biomarker identification, disease diagnosis, imaging techniques, and cell-based therapies.

    Introducing Dr. Zhe She to the Department of Chemistry

    Dr. Zhe She

    We would like to welcome Assistant Professor, Dr. Zhe She to the Department of Chemistry. Dr. She carried out his postdoctoral research work at the University of Toronto, where he was a research associate and Calian contractor jointly with Royal Military College of Canada, in developing new portable analytical tools for pathogen detection in water samples. The She Lab will focus on developing new analytical methods for environmental monitoring and clinical diagnostics, and providing cross-disciplinary teaching opportunities for students and postdoctoral fellows to study nanotechnology, biosensors, chemistry and instrumentations.

Queen’s University received two new NSERC CREATE grants, each for $1.65MNSERC Announcement

On July 16th the Honourable Kirsty Duncan, Minister of Science, announced that Queen’s University received two new NSERC CREATE grants, each for $1.65M. The CREATE program will provide teams led by Queen’s associate professors Stephen Brown (Chemistry) and James Fraser (Physics) with support for the training of graduate and undergraduate students through the development of two innovative training programs, (1) in water and watershed sustainability, and (2) in materials for photonics and sensing, respectively. In total, 7 research chemistry groups (Brown, Crudden, Loock, Nunzi, Oleschuk, Stamplecoskie, and Wang) are benefitting directly from this support.
