HuMed – Wayne State Premedical Undergraduate Mentoring Program
Ongoing Recruitment of Mentees
HuMed mentoring will center around a “Big Sib/Little Sib” program with Wayne State pre-medical undergraduates. HuMed students will advise the undergraduate students on activities to focus on during their undergraduate studies to enhance their premedical experience and make them a stronger candidate for medical school.
HuMed students will also encourage the pre-med students to get clinical experience and be active in the community during their undergraduate education.
HuMed students will encourage pre-medical students to explore and appreciate alternative forms of medicine and also to appreciate the artistic side of medicine.
This program is able to accommodate 80 students
DTE Energy is hosting a meet and greet with AIChE and SWE. They will be presenting on their company and opportunities available within their company in addition to taking resumes of interested students. They will be providing lunch as well, please contact Kara Cox for additional questions/information: email@example.com
The Office of the Vice President for Research is pleased to host the next Nano@Wayne Seminar on Tuesday, February 3, 2015 at 2:30 p.m. at Wayne State University's Welcome Center Auditorium. The guest presenter will be Dr. Will Medlin from the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering at University of Colorado Boulder. He will present,"Controlling selectivity in heterogeneous catalysis with organic monolayers." A reception will immediately follow in the Welcome Center Lobby. The seminar is free; registration is requested.
Bio: Dr. Medlin obtained his BS degree from Clemson University and his PhD degree in chemical engineering at the University of Delaware. He was a post-doctoral researcher at Sandia National Laboratories in Livermore, California. In 2003 he joined the faculty at the University of Colorado (CU). He is currently the Denver Business Challenge Endowed Professor and associate department chair in Chemical and Biological Engineering at CU.
Medlin is the co-founder and Managing Director for the Colorado Center for Biorefining and Biofuels (C2B2), and is a founding fellow of the joint CU/NREL Renewable and Sustainable Energy Institute (RASEI). His awards include the NSF CAREER and ONR Young Investigator Awards. He has published more than 80 peer-reviewed journal articles in the research areas of surface chemistry and heterogeneous catalysis.
Abstact: Performing selective reactions of chemical feedstocks with multiple functional groups is a challenging objective, since each functional group can potentially adsorb and react on a catalytic surface. Addressing this problem is important both in conventional production of chemicals and for the conversion of biomass to chemicals and fuels. Our group has investigated several techniques for aligning multifunctional molecules above metal surfaces to promote selective reaction of a particular functional group. One approach involves the modification of supported metal catalysts with organic ligands such as organothiols. Organothiols can be deposited on metal surfaces to form organized self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) that may cause reactants to adopt particular orientations above the metal surface, altering selectivity. Several mechanisms by which SAMs can improve selectivity have been identified. For example, SAM coatings can be used to tune the reactivity of the underlying metal surface sites. Furthermore, the organic function of SAM coatings can be tuned to control non-covalent interactions in the near-surface environment. The utility of these mechanisms for selectivity control will be illustrated for reaction chemistries important in biorefining and production of valuable chemicals. Some alternative directions for achieving surface and near-surface control will also be discussed.
Tuesdays @ 4:00-6:00 pm in the WSU Welcome Center Auditorium
