Sep 2020 OK, collaborations are fun and lots of stuff we can't talk about yet....hopefully by early spring....
Spring-Summer 2020 So sad that covid prevented summer undergraduate research, but we're getting back in to things this fall.

July 2020 Big Congrats to Shelby Valent (MS '20) for defending and submitting her thesis, and off to her first job in chemistry.

May 2020 So proud of our graduating seniors Echo He, Chengtong Zhang, and Charlotte Artesani - they are off to great things.

Feb 2020
Nerd-out with me on a new blog - see that link top right?

Feb 2020 Keep your eye on that Feb 8 ENC deadline!
Jan 2020 DSR off to Gainesville to talk about micelles, serum and NUS; what an amazing environment for NMR!
Dec 2019. Great to play a small role in this work with the fabulous UConn group. How sampling impacts signal metrics: (
Dec 2019. Congrats to Mark R. and a great author team: NUS and 1-1-ADEQUATE paper accepted. More details soon.
Dec 2019. Where did the year go? Grad apps/letters are out the door for our seniors and starting to think ahead to ENC 2020.
Nov. 2019. Congrats to Mark Roginkin (BS '21, BME), who presented at Eastern Analytical Symposium on NUS and 1,1-Adequate. (
Jan 2019. Getting ready to bring Team Micelle to PittCon! Can't wait to share new results in bile micelles and guest-host chemistries.
Jan 2019. Technical note discussing lipemic sera for NMR recently accepted - hope to see in press soon.
Fall 2018. Excited to share : the Collaborative NSF-RUI proposal funded for Team Micelle to probe and improve chiral selection by bile micelles. Congrats to the whole PI team: Prof. Tim Strein, Prof. Mike Krout, Prof. Maria Salari and D. Rovnyak.
Fall 2018. Congrats and warm wishes to Emma Robinson (M.S. '18) starting a new position at Bausch&Lomb!
Aug 1 2018. Mark calendars for Emma Robinson's thesis defense!
June 2018. Congrats to Sophie Kong for winning one of the poster awards at Chirality in Princeton; and lab alum Reilly Sonstrom won a poster award for her PhD work at UVA!
May 2018. Read all about chiral binding sites in our newest article on Langmuir featuring Adam, Jenna, Kyle and Greg!
May 2018. Congratulations to Emma Wang (BS Biochem '18) on Phi Beta Kappa and starting a PhD candidacy at Yale in the fall!
May 2018. Quantile scheduler updated with more user-friendly features. Please visit our Downloads Page to get it!
May 2018. DSR and Frank did the NUS Tutorial at ENC 2018 - want to know how to SMILE or IST or maximize your entropy? What is the bandwidth of NUS anyway? While we wait for the video to go up, check out all of the ENC tutorial videos.
Spring 2018. Personalized medicine and our exciting collaboration with Geisinger shared in a Bucknell 360 Online Lecture.
Spring 2018. Quantile paper is live! Choosing NUS schedules is very intuitive with quantiles. Check it out at JMR.
Fall 2017. Emma Robinson giving a sneak peek of NAFLD metabolomic results at The Obesity Society. Poster Abstract.
Spring 2017. The quantile scheduler is now officially released - please visit our Downloads Page to get it.!
Spring 2017. Where did the time go? Congratulations to our graduating seniors D. Levi Craft ('17), Matt Taddeo ('17) and Ross Pirnie ('17)!
Spring 2016. Congratulations to our graduating seniors Reilly Sonstrom ('16) heading to UVA and Phillip Martin ('16) heading to PSU!
October 2015. Reilly Sonstrom (Cell Bio/Biochem'17) and Levi Craft (Eng. '18) presented posters at the Upstate NY NMR Conference.
October 2015. Get 20% 13C enrichment with 10% 13C glucose. We call it optimized fractional enrichment: congrats to first authors Broc and Reilly on this cool paper. (2015). Abstract.
April 2015. A great team effort led by Mel's thesis work puts NUS sensitivity on solid ground: Sensitivity of Nonuniform Sampling NMR, at J. Phys. Chem. B, (2015).
January 2014. Make NUS work for you. And this must be first use of Beer License in NMR software! Performance tuning non-uniform sampling for sensitivity enhancement of signal-limited biological, J. Biomol. NMR 58(4): 303-314, (2014). Abstract.
2014-15. Just noticed that the cross polarization tutorial is one of the top downloaded articles at Concepts.
Spring 2014. Some people are making a case that the Lambert function deserves to be a button on every calculator. We think so too! 2011-2012 NUS. You can calculate the sensitivity enhancement by NUS. It can even be compounded in multiple NUS dimensions.
