chaired a session and presented an invited lecture on “Probing the Structure and Topology of Caveolin- 1” at the Annual Meeting of the Biophysical Society February 2015. Glover is also serving as a permanent member of a National Institutes of Health study panel. Glover also coauthored “Secondary Structure Analysis of a Functional Construct of Caveolin-1 Reveals a Long C-terminal Helix” in Biophys. J.

gave a Keynote Lecture at the IUPAC Conference on Physical Organic Chemistry entitled: “Unraveling the Mechanism of Single-Electron Reduction and Oxidation in Synthetic Reactions.” He also gave lectures at University of Michigan and Wayne State University in October entitled: “Give or Take and Electron. Mechanistic Studies of Single Electron Transfer in Synthetically Important Reactions.” Flowers was also an invited speaker in China this past spring and gave lectures on his research at the...

and his group of graduate and under - graduate students are active in the areas of electrochemistry at the surface of gold and synthetic chemistry on silicon/ silicon dioxide. Current research in the first area focuses on the chemistry of the thermodynamically unstable oxide(s) of gold, which his group has used in NSF-funded work as a “protecting group” to allow regioselective synthesis on microelectrode arrays. These oxide studies have revealed new insights not only into the materials...

Mark Chen presented a poster at the inaugural awards symposium for the Charles E. Kaufman Foundation in Pittsburgh, PA in the Fall of 2015. The poster entitled “Development of Molecular Biradicaloids for Organic Electronic Materials” described the ongoing projects in his lab currently being pursued by graduate students, Michael Kerner and Caleb Wehrmann. The Chen Lab has twice received summer support from the Lehigh Class of ’68 Junior Faculty Research Fellowship, which assisted in research...
