Carolyn Bertozzi joins Stanford ChEM-H and the Department of Chemistry

Friday, June 5, 2015

Bertozzi recently came to Stanford to join Stanford ChEM-H (Chemistry, Engineering & Medicine for Human Health), the new interdisciplinary institute that brings together chemists, engineers, biologists and clinicians to understand life at a chemical level and apply that knowledge to improving human health. In addition to her research, she will also help bolster chemistry education at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.

Professor Bertozzi sees chemicals as having personalities and those personalities determine how they behave.  She's bringing this vision to her teaching, hoping to help chemistry and biology students as well as the general public understand what's exciting in chemistry.  Excerpts of this news highlight reprinted from the June 5, 2015 issue of the Stanford Report.  To see the full article, click on the following link.
