American Chemical Society member Lisa Holland will visit Frostburg State University on Wednesday, March 8, at 3 p.m. to discuss “Natural Products and Miniaturized Separations: A study of Acorus calamus” in Compton Science Center, room 328. Holland will be joined by fellow ACS members Stephanie Archer and Christian White.
A second discussion will be held on “Miniaturization, Biological Questions, Properties of Matter and Device Development: The Interdisciplinary Nature of Science” at Sand Springs Saloon and Steakhouse in Frostburg. Dinner will begin at 6:30 p.m. and the presentation will begin at 7:45 p.m. The public is invited to both events.
Holland’s presentation at FSU will review Capillary electrophoresis (CE) and its characteristics. Also she will discuss CE separations. In the second presentation, Holland will discuss portable devices and how they can benefit scientists finding breakthroughs.
Holland received her B.S. in Chemistry from the University of Maryland at College Park in 1990. She later received her Ph.D. in Chemistry from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 1996. Through a National Research Service Award, she held a postdoctoral fellowship in Pharmaceutical Chemistry at the University of Kansas. Currently, she holds a faculty position in the Department of Chemistry at West Virginia University specializing in bioanalytical separations. Holland is the recipient of a National Science Foundation Faculty Early Career Development award, has served on the scientific committee of the Frederick Conference on Capillary Electrophoresis, and has numerous publications in the field of separations chemistry.
Sponsors for this event include FSU’s Student Affiliates of the American Chemical Society and the Western Maryland Section of the American Chemical Society. For more information on the talks or if you wish to attend the dinner, please contact Dr. Don B. Weser at 301-687-4157.
