On November 14th, members of the Oregon Chapter of the Achievement Rewards for College Students (ARCS) Foundation visited the UO campus to show their support and celebrate as ARCS Scholar Susan Cooper defended her thesis.  They also enjoyed a lunch with current ARCS Scholars Amber Rolland and Hannah Bates.

The Oregon Chapter is one of fifteen ARCS Foundation Chapters nationwide.  Its membership is made up of Oregon women philanthropists committed to advancing science in America. The chapter seeks to support and nurture young American women and men in doctoral programs as they prepare to take on current and future scientific and medical challenges.The Oregon Chapter has supported over 248 PhD candidates with financial support of over $4.1 million since the chapter was incorporated in 2004.

Teamwork leads UO chemists to a new kind of fluorescent dye

Video:Doctoral student Brittany White talks about the collaborative research project she worked on with postdoctoral researcher Yu Zhao and chemistry professors Ramesh Jasti and Mike Pluth.

Teamwork by chemists in two University of Oregon labs has led to a new class of fluorescent dyes that could expand the real-time view of cell activity in medical diagnostics.

In a paper in ACS Central Science, with White as lead author, the group detailed how they fitted organic molecules called nanohoops with a chemical sidechain of sulfonate to make them water soluble and able to penetrate cell membranes. Nanohoops are made with short, circular slices of carbon atoms. Making them in different sizes, the group discovered, produces distinctive colors that can be illuminated in living cells by a single laser burst.
