The Brucker lab has been awarded this year’s Milton Fund to study the impact of agrochemicals on honeybee microbiomes. This work will bring a better understanding to the the function of the millions of bacteria that live in animals guts and their ability to detoxify xenobiotic chemicals. Local beekeeping organizations have volunteered to participate in this study of microbiomes in their hives to better understand bee health.

The Rowland Foundation has awarded the Rowland Institute at Harvard $100,000 for one year to create a program that will provide mentoring and supervisory experience for a postdoctoral fellow and hands-on research experience for an undergraduate research student working with the postdoctoral fellow.
The Wang Lab has developed a copper nanocube catalyst by Cu2+ ion battery cycling method that efficiently converts CO2 into high value hydrocarbon products like ethylene, ethanol and n-propanol. Combining density functional theory simulation on the facet dependence of the initial Carbon-Carbon coupling steps, this work demonstrates a vivid feedback loop between theory and...
