Undergraduate Research Alive and Well in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, Including International Involvement

The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry engaged 13 students in undergraduate research over the summer, including two students from MCC, two students from Germany, and one Brockport student conducting research in Germany.

Thanks to the support from the Morris Fellowship for Summer Research in Chemistry, the Undergraduate Research Fellowship in Chemistry, the Hallenbeck Research Scholarship for Summer Research in Chemistry, Summer Undergraduate Research Program (SURP), and Monroe Community College’s Collegiate Science and Technology Entry Program (arranged by Professor LeSuer), the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry engaged 13 undergraduate students in various exciting research projects.

Two of these 13 students, Anna Zarda and Michelle Seifert, are undergraduate students from the Technical University (TU) Darmstadt who were supervised by Professor Heitz. This is the second year that the College hosted students from TU Darmstadt for summer research, a side outcome from the research collaboration of Professor Hoffmann with the research group of Professor Buntkowsky where he has been a “Mercator Fellow” since 2015.

During summer 2019, Brockport student Mathew Too joined Professor Hoffmann in Darmstadt. The research first involved differential scanning calorimetry experiments and then, with a new collaboration with the Vogel group, molecular dynamics simulations. The pictures below also show TU Darmstadt graduate students with that worked closely together with Matthew Too and Professor Hoffmann.
