Prof. Marcos Dantus, University Distinguished Professor and MSU Foundation Professor of Chemistry and Physics, received the 2019 Technology Transfer Award for his work with ultrafast lasers—an innovation that takes a low intensity, long pulse and compresses it to increase its energy. These lasers are ideal for probing and controlling chemical reactions and for use in biomedical imaging and sensing.
Michigan State University scientists, led by College of Natural Science (NatSci) chemist Xuefei Huang, are engineering a virus-like particle, known as Qβ, that will generate anti-cancer immune responses in the body and potentially be used as a new vaccine for the treatment of cancer.
MSU Chemistry Prof. Xuefei Huang has been selected to receive the Melville L. Wolfrom Award from the American Chemical Society
New research conducted at Michigan State University features a chemistry approach that’s solving some of the riddles of the complex protein-building process of folding.
