The roughly two thousand marchers in Eugene heard speeches by LCC Physics Professor & Dean of Science, Paul Ruscher; UO Chemistry & Biochemistry Professor Jeffrey A. Cina; and US Representative Peter DeFazio.
Shown below is text of Professor Cina’s speech.
The Emerald Podcast Network kicked off its new series, Spotlight on Science, by interviewing UO Chemistry and Biochemistry faculty Michael Haley. EPN’s Franklin Lewis chats with Prof. Haley about his research, his Boston terrier, and common misconceptions about organic chemistry.

In anticipation of the March for Science on Earth Day, Saturday, April 22, the OEC is celebrating the many women and men who help innovate solutions to protect Oregon’s air, water and climate by sharing snapshots of a few scientists who help inform the OEC’s work.
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.
