"Congratulations to Dr. Larry Yet whose book titled, 'Privileged Structures in Drug Discovery:  Medicinal Chemistry and Synthesis' is now in print.  This is Dr. Yet's second book that has gone in print while a faculty member of the Department of Chemistry here at the University of South Alabama.  His first book, which was published just a couple of years ago, was part of the Organic Reactions series which provided a focused, scholarly, and comprehensive overview of olefin ring-closing metathesis reactions.  His latest book in many ways builds upon his first and has as a focus the use of privileged structures as viable candidates in lead optimization stages of drug discovery.  The two books highlight Dr. Yet's expertise as a synthetic organic chemistry whose focus is in the assembly and use of novel scaffolds targeting medicinally important receptors.  " - David Forbes

"Please join me with the leadership of the American Chemical Society (ACS) in congratulating Dr. David R. Battiste for 50 years of service with ACS. As former/current Chairs of the Local ACS Section - Dr. Stojanovic and I have received these certificates for members in our section over the years who have reached this status and it truly is a pleasure to circulate this to each you. As each of you know Dr. Battiste, I do not need to take any polls in validating our appreciation in all areas of academe to which he has made meaningful and impactful differences to so many (teaching, research, and service). If wanting to see all those recognized for 50 years of service in ACS this year, there are 918, the list was published in C&E News (p. 35) a little over two weeks ago (the March 5, 2018 issue). "- David Forbes

"One of our senior chemistry ACS track students William A. Swann won one of five Best Poster Presentation plaques at the Annual Research Symposium March 14–15, 2018 at Alabama State University in Montgomery, AL. His poster was titled Synthesis of Imidazo[1,2-a]pyridine Ligands for Use in Difficult Cross-Coupling Reactions." - Larry Yet, Ph.D.

"The students of the Chemistry 101 laboratory (Survey of Inorganic and Organic Chemistry) spent time during the week of February 19-23, 2018 with Dr. Mike Jacobs and his staff from the USA Human-Patient Simulation Program. Over 240 students sat in on lectures about IV bags, concentration gradients, and Hydrostatic/Oncotic pressure. In addition, they had the opportunity to work with the professionals in the Human-Patient Simulation Program with the setup and use of IV bags with simulation patients. These students are preparing to enter the USA College of Nursing Program." - Richard O'Brien, Ph.D.
