Kenny Myers, Eric Tillman, Will Coyne, Kristen Ronca, Chris Valente, Liz Carnicom, Autumn Schellenberger
  • Just received an NSF award, supporting our work in macrocyclic polymer synthesis.
  • MS student Scott Blackburn (BS Bloomsburg) has joined the group.
  • Liz Carnicom is named a Beckman Scholar for 2013-2014, and she is accepted into our joint BS/MS program.
  • Congratulations and best wishes to Andy and Carolyn, who recently got married and started graduate programs at University of Wisconsin.
  • Recent MS graduates Scott Radzinski (Virginia Tech) and Phil Pickett (U. of Southern Miss.) have moved on to PhD programs.
