WestConn alum presents biochemistry seminar

Matt YoungDr. Matthew Young will present "Probing the Structure of P450cam Via High Resolution NMR" tomorrow (Friday, Feb. 11) at 3 p.m. in Science Building 219 as part of the 2011 Dept. of Chemistry Seminar Series

A 1996 WestConn graduate in Chemistry,  Dr. Young earned his doctorate at the University of New Hampshire and is currently working as a postdoctoral fellow at Brandeis University in Boston. 

As Dr. Paul Hines, Interim Assistant Dean and Professor of Chemistry, says, "If you have any bright young people agonizing about the cost of going to college when they are looking at graduate school after that, you might send them to see a local young man who got his bachelor's degree in Chemistry here at Western and went on to get his Ph.D. and is now doing really cutting-edge, high-powered science."

The Chemistry Seminar Series is in its 36th year.
