Graduate Student Kim Mullane Honored

Congratulations to Kim Mullane (Schelter group), who was awarded one of just eight ACS Women Chemists Committee Travel Award, sponsored by Eli Lilly & Company! The grant supported travel to the ACS National Meeting in Denver.

Teaching Awards for Penn Chemistry

Professor Jeffery Saven is the recipient of the Dean's Award for Innovation in Chemistry.


Jacob Nagy (Winkler group) and Yitao Zhang (Chenoweth group) both have been selected to receive Dean's Awards for Distinguished Teaching by Graduate Students.

Chemistry Undergraduates Highlighted

College undergraduates Lily Owei and Keith Keenan don’t have a whole lot in common when it comes to their backgrounds. She was born in Nigeria, where she lived for seven years before moving to Germany, then South Africa, and finally to the U.S. to attend Penn. He grew up in China, where his mother and father taught English and homeschooled him. From these diverse beginnings, however, they have come to share a common interest—and workspace—in Assistant Professor of Chemistry James Petersson’s lab group.


Jeff Saven's Research Featured

Penn Chemistry and Perelman School of Medicine researchers trying to understand the mechanisms through which anesthetics work to elicit the response that puts millions of Americans to sleep for surgeries each day. A recent study looked at ketamine, an anesthetic discovered in the 1960s and more recently prescribed as an anti-depressant at low doses, and has identified an entirely new class of receptors that ketamine binds in the body, which may underlie its diverse actions. The work is published in this week’s issue of Science Signaling.
