Convocation BBQ - May 31 at 4:30 p.m.

The Department of Chemistry & Biochemistry convocation is Wednesday, May 31, 2017 at 3:00 p.m.  

As always, we will be hosting a bar-b-q in front of Essex Hall starting around 4:30 p.m.  

Graduating students and their families are invited to attend, take some pictures and grab a bite to eat.

Everyone is our department is invited to attend as well. 

Please contact Marlene Bezaire if you are planning on attending; some volunteers are needed to assist with BBQ prep and cooking as well!

Congratulations to all of our graduating students!

2 Day Workshop: Introduction to Practical Aspects of Solution NMR for Chemists

2 Day Workshop: Introduction to Practical Aspects of Solution NMR for Chemists

Wednesday May 24 and Thursday May 25: 
9:00 am to 12:00 pm each day

This introductory workshop is geared toward undergraduate students, and new graduate students with limited NMR experience, but who are expected to make use of the NMR spectrometers as part of their research projects.

The workshop is meant as a supplement to the "one on one" training that new NMR users receive and will allow an opportunity to go into greater depth on many topics, therefore students who have recently started to use our NMR instruments are especially encouraged to attend. There will be an Advanced NMR Workshop offered later in the summer.

The schedule will consist of a lecture to start each day followed by hands-on learning sessions where participants will get the opportunity to collect and process NMR data.

The topics covered include:

  • How an NMR spectrometer works
  • NMR Magnet Safety
  • Preparation of NMR Samples
  • Set up of 1D 1H and 13C NMR Experiments
  • Processing and Presentation of NMR Data

The workshop is free of charge to members of the Dept. of Chemistry and Biochemistry; however, enrolment is limited, so please register soon!

Please note that a separate Intro Workshop will be held for MMB students in July so MMB students should not register for this workshop.

Submit complete applications to Dr. Bulent Mutus by email to chembiohead@uwindsor.ca 
by Friday, May 12, 2017. 

The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry intends to offer the following graduate courses during the Fall 2017 semester which might not be staffed by full-time faculty members as part of their normal teaching load. In accordance with section 54-07 of the 2014-2017 Collective Agreement, the department invites applications from suitably qualified individuals who are interested in teaching the following courses.

Biochemistry & Cell Biology – Lipids & Membranes 03-59-675-01
This course focuses on the biochemistry and cell biology of lipids and their role in cellular signaling, with a particular emphasis on the experimental basis of current knowledge. Topics covered include lipid biochemistry, membrane biophysics, the biochemistry and metabolism of small molecules such as steroids and leukotrienes, and an integrative assessment of the role of lipids and membranes in cellular processes such as protein trafficking and intracellular signaling. (Enrolment restricted to MMB students.)

Biotechnology Entrepreneurship 03-59-690-01
Entrepreneurship in Biotechnology will provide students an introduction to the complexities and unique problems facing the biotechnology industry. Students will be exposed to the topics most critical for successfully founding, financing and operating a life science company, and will be expected to perform many of the same tasks that founders would normally undertake. Discussions with life-science entrepreneurs, evaluation of existing biotechnology firms, case studies based on recent companies and hands-on work developing entrepreneurial endeavors all will be utilized. (Enrolment restricted to MMB students.) (Equivalent to 2 courses.)
