Prof. Ron Castellano Selected as 2013 U.S. IUPAC Young Observer

“Prof. Ron Castellano has been named one of about ten Young Observers in the United States who will attend the 47th IUPAC General Assembly and 44th IUPAC World Chemistry Congress to be held in Istanbul, Turkey. Established in 1977, the program allows participants under the age of 45 – from industry, academia, and national laboratories – to experience the global efforts that impact the scientific community and furthers their careers and international reputation with networking opportunities.”

Prof. Christou Re-appointed Honorary Professor at the London Centre for Nanotechnology

“Distinguished Professor George Christou has been re-appointed as an Honorary Professor at the London Centre for Nanotechnology and University College, London, for the 2013-2017 period for his work on single-molecule magnetism. The LCN was set up in 2007 by the UK to solve important challenges in various fields such as information processing, energy, the environment, medicine, and others, by bringing together the necessary expertise in nanoscience and nanotechnology from the underlying disciplines within the physical sciences, engineering, and biomedicine. It has been spectacularly successful, and it celebrated its 5th anniversary in September, 2012. Prof. Christou was originally appointed as Honorary Professor for the 2008-2012 period, during which time he built up significant associations with several LCN research groups, particularly physics groups interested in nanomagnetism. His research involves the synthesis of molecules that can function as single-molecule magnets, and other magnetically-interesting species, and the detailed study of their classical and quantum properties relevant to applications in spintronics and quantum computing. His work is funded by the National Science Foundation.”
