Boron Chemistry Meeting in the Americas

The 16th Boron Chemistry Meeting in the Americas (BORAM 2018) will be held at Boston College  on June 26 - 30, 2018.  The conference attracts scientists working in the varied facets of boron research including; materials, organic, medicinal and inorganic chemistry.  Local Organizing Chair, Professor Shih-Yuan Liu, and the members of the local organizing committee, Professors Jeff Byers, Jianmin Gao and Masayuki Wasa, have already assembled an impressive list of speakers who are prominent in the field of  boron chemistry.  For more details about the conference, please visit the meeting website:  BORAM 2018

Jia Niu

We are very pleased to announce that Dr. Jia Niu will be joining the faculty this summer.  He earned his doctorate at Harvard University and is currently a postdoctoral fellow at the University of California, Santa Barbara.  Dr. Niu's research will focus on establishing new capabilities to engineer the chemical landscape of the living cell surface towards novel functions.  He will be using interdisciplinary measures which combine organic synthesis, polymer chemistry, bioconjugation, evolution, and bioengineering approaches.
