Dear Friend of Chemistry,
I hope this finds you well. The vernal equinox marks the start of spring and I welcome the warmth and light in the days and weeks ahead. On campus, our COVID precautions are changing, and I am continually impressed by both the grit and grace shown by our students, staff, and faculty during a not quite linear transition back to in-person activities.
The stories that comprise this issue of the ChemLetter will catch you up on our recent activities, but we would like to know what you have been up to! I invite you to Submit an Alumni Update so current students can learn about the various activities of our alumni and your former classmates can keep up to date with you! We’ll post your updates on our news blog and publish them in our next issue of our annual UW Chemistry Magazine coming in August or September.
I hope to see many of you soon, either at a lecture this spring or on the Quad to enjoy the cherry blossoms—
Professor & Chair, Department of Chemistry
