Robin Kinnel
Kinnel Participates in Panel on Role of Research at Liberal Arts Colleges
Silas D. Childs Professor of Chemistry Robin Kinnel recently took part in a panel exploring the role of research at primarily undergraduate institutions at Washington College, host of the 43rd meeting of the Middle Atlantic Association of Liberal Arts Chemistry Teachers. Kinnel and his co-panelist, Shaun Murphree (Allegheny College), discussed the experiences of their departments in the significant growth in publications that was described in a recent article in the Journal of Chemical Education.

Adam Van Wynsberghe
Van Wynsberghe Awarded Supercomputing Grant
Assistant Professor of Chemistry Adam Van Wynsberghe was awarded an allocation of supercomputing time on the Texas Advanced Computing Center at the University of Texas in Austin. It's a grant that allows him and the students in his group to access this very powerful resource -- it will help them to carry out their simulations at a much faster rate than they could with the current on-campus resources.

Sam Cho '10 and Adam Van Wynsberghe
New Chemistry Prof. and Hamilton Junior Collaborate in UCSD Lab
Newly hired Assistant Professor of Chemistry Adam Van Wynsberghe became acquainted with Hamilton College before he even arrived. This summer, he and Hamilton student Sam Cho ’10 participated in biophysical chemistry research at the University of California at San Diego (UCSD), where Van Wynsberghe was an NIH Kirschstein post-doctoral fellow. He says the experience was “good for both parties” in that while Cho familiarized himself with the sort of research that could consume his career after Hamilton, Van Wynsberghe became acclimated to the Hamilton community through Cho.

Nathaniel Taylor '11
Nathaniel Taylor '11 Studies Effectiveness of Alpha-Fetoprotein Peptides
Following pregnancy, women sometimes have a high concentration of what is known as alpha-fetoprotein, a protein found in blood plasma and produced in the yolk sac and liver during the fetal stage of development. Previous studies have shown that the alpha-fetoprotein has pronounced affects against breast cancer, and therefore women who have had multiple births might be less at risk. This summer Nathaniel Taylor ’11 looked at two sub-derivatives (small pieces) of alpha-fetoprotein, Peptides TPVNP and STPNVP to see if the properties they possess could be extracted for pharmaceutical purposes. He worked on the research with Silas D. Childs Professor of Chemistry Robin Kinnel. More ...
Billy Wieczorek '11
Billy Wieczorek ‘11 Evaluates Piscidin-3’s Ability to Fight Infection
Piscidins are potent biological substances. Classified as antimicrobial peptides, they naturally fight off infection in organisms like the hybrid striped bass, among others. There are four members of the family of piscidins that Billy Wieczorek ’11 is studying this summer. Piscidin-1 has been the subject of myriad other studies, and although it has many antimicrobial properties, it can be harmful to human blood cells because it cannot differentiate between bacterial and mammalian cells. More ...
Keith Willner '11
Keith Willner ’11 Studies the Chemistry of Butterflies
As a high school student, Keith Willner ’11 was very interested in chemistry but had no interest in going to Hamilton because he was a local student and felt it was too close to home. “My parents dragged me on a tour of campus.” But as soon as he entered the Science Center, with its towering glass windows and immaculate, well-equipped labs, his sullen attitude went away. “I was hooked,” he said. Now Willner is a budding chemist working for the Silas D. Childs Professor of Chemistry Robin Kinnel. The goal of his research this summer is to establish that the (-) enantiomer of germacrene D is the principal chemical signal for feeding and egg laying in the female Phyciodes tharos (Pearl Crescent) butterfly.  More ...
          MERCURY
MERCURY Attracts Researchers Across the U.S.
The Eighth Annual National MERCURY Conference on Computational Chemistry, devoted solely to undergraduates who are working on research projects in computational chemistry, was held at Hamilton from August 2 - 4. Hamilton, National Science Foundation and SGI provided support for the conference. More ...
Myriam Cotten
Cotten Publishes in Journal of American Chemical Society
Associate Professor of Chemistry Myriam Cotten published a paper in the Journal of the American Chemical Society, the flagship journal of the American Chemical Society. The paper titled “High Resolution Heteronuclear Correlation NMR Spectroscopy of an Antimicrobial Peptide in Aligned Lipid Bilayers: Peptide-Water Interactions at the Water-Bilayer Interface” is co-authored with two undergraduatesas well as Dr. Riqiang Fu, a research scientist at the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory in Tallahassee. More ...
Robin Kinnel
Kinnel Presents Paper Co-authored by Irvin '09
Robin Kinnel, the Silas D. Childs Professor of Chemistry, presented a poster titled "The Chemistry of Aster prenanthoides: An Unexpected Encounter with a Polyacetylenic Hydrocarbon" at the meeting of the American Society of Pharmacognosy. Thomas Irvin '09 co-authored the paper. The scientific work detailed in the poster was largely taken from Irvin's thesis. More ...
Myriam Cotten
Elgren and Cotten Participate in Council on Undergraduate Research Meeting
Professor of Chemistry Tim Elgren and Associate Professor of Chemistry Myriam Cotten participated in a Council on Undergraduate Research annual business meeting from June 18-20, that gathered councilors from diverse academic disciplines at Montana State University in Bozeman. More ...
