Work from the Ronning lab highlighted on the cover of the August 2018 issue of ACTA Crystallographica D

A 5-year review of structural biology performed at the Oak Ridge National Lab IMAGINE beam line was published in ACTA Cryst D this month. A portion of one neutron crystal structure published by Mike Banco from the Ronning group in PNAS 2016 was used for the cover illustration. If you have access to ACTA Cryst D, the following link will take you to the review.

Big awards day for the Ronning lab

The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry held the annual Awards Tea. Numerous awards were given. Gwendal Loarer and Cecile Petit, in an unprecedented dual sweep, were both awarded the "Best TA of the Year Award." They are the 5th and 6th winners of that award from the Ronning lab.

An equally impressive accomplishment, Cecile Schreidah was awarded the Henry R. Kreider Scholarship.

Congratulations to all three. Well done!
