Paper by Julie Haack Featured in the ACS Nexus – Green Chemistry Newsletter

A research paper by UO Chemistry and Biochemistry faculty Julie Haack was featured in an article in the March edition of the Nexus – Green Chemistry Newsletter titled “Effectively Communicating the Need for Green Chemistry.”

The paper, “If Chemists Don’t Do It, Who Is Going To?” Peer-driven Occupational Change and the Emergence of Green Chemistry, was co-written by Jennifer Howard-Grenville, Andrew J. Nelson, Andrew G. Earle, Julie A. Haack, and Douglas M. Young. It was first published January 19, 2017 in Administrative Science Quarterly.

In their paper, Dr. Haack and her colleagues investigate the emergence and growth of “green chemistry”—an effort by chemists to encourage other chemists to reduce the health, safety, and environmental impacts of chemical products and processes—and explore how green chemistry advocates influence how their peers do their work.

Pluth Lab Designer Molecule Offers New Hope for Damaged Cells

andrea_steiger-pluth_lab
Researchers in the UO lab of chemist Michael Pluth are part of a global battle against oxidative stress in the human body. It happens as we age and when we eat too much, smoke and drink alcohol. Affected cells release reactive oxygen that damage cells.

Heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and more than 70 other diseases involve damages from oxidative stress.

Knight Gift for New UO Science Campus Means the Future Starts Now

A $500 million gift from longtime UO supporters Penny and Phil Knight will be used to create the Phil and Penny Knight Campus for Accelerating Scientific Impact. The one-of-a-kind center will be dedicated to the translation of laboratory discoveries into tangible innovations that improve lives and advance society.

To be known as the Knight Campus, the initiative will be one of the first public university initiatives to bring researchers together with entrepreneurial specialists for the primary purpose of finding new and transformative ways of turning research into everyday products, technologies and services to aid society at large.
