Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry

Alumni Phillip Hammer (2015) recently presented research on “The Dissolution and Electrochemical Reduction of Actinide Series Metals in Ionic Liquids” at the 19th annual Council of Undergraduate’s Research symposium presented on Capitol Hill. The Council of Undergraduate’s Research (CUR) is a group assisted by the American Chemical Society for the pursuit of and continued funding for STEM educations and the importance of undergraduate’s research projects. While in D.C., Phillip spoke with Senator Risch of Idaho and two staff members for both the senators of Idaho.  While there, Phillip managed to gather Sen. Risch’s support for STEM education, allowing CUR to continue seeking his support for policy regarding this issue.
