May 24, 2019Texas A&M chemist Karen Wooley's laboratory is fighting hemorrhage — a leading cause of death in traumatic injuries — by developing a bioabsorbable wound dressing with encapsulated chitosan nanofibers that, when applied to liver injury sites in animals, dissolves in as little as seven days, eliminating the need for subsequent physical removal and any chance of re-injury in the process
Jul 20, 2015Each summer, Texas A&M chemist James Pennington treks across Texas in a custom-fitted cargo van to spread scientific goodwill and supplement summer enrichment programs at area schools, libraries and museums as coordinator for one of Texas A&M's most popular educational outreach programs, the Chemistry Road Show.
Spheres of Influence
Jul 31, 2019Experimentation is the heart of scientific discovery, a process often limited only by drive, imagination and opportunity. Dozens of undergraduate students from across the nation recently seized theirs, spending the past two months at Texas A&M immersed in all things academic research while exploring their potential for graduate study, courtesy of a signature National Science Foundation program, Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU).
Running Down a Dream
Jul 30, 2019Congratulations to Dr. Richard A. Box '61, one of 10 Aggies honored this year with the university's highest former student honor, the Distinguished Alumnus Award.

Jul 25, 2019Congratulations to Texas A&M at Qatar chemist and associate dean for research Hassan Bazzi, who has been named a 2019 Fellow of the American Chemical Society in recognition of his outstanding achievements in chemistry and contributions to science, the profession and the society.
Why I Give
Jul 18, 2019Fifty years ago, Ersen Arseven ’74 made a life-altering choice, deciding to pursue his Ph.D. in statistics at Texas A&M University. He continues to invest in Texas A&M's future and that of its faculty and students through endowments — a topic we recently teamed up with the Texas A&M Foundation to explore in both video and behind-the-scenes formats.
Jul 10, 2019Emails between two faculty members aren't necessarily newsworthy, but when it's two Texas A&M distinguished professors exchanging space-related videos and brief memories of the Apollo program, consider our curiosity piqued by a rare glimpse at the humanity behind the history on the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing.
Jun 28, 2019Texas A&M chemist David Powers has been selected to receive a 2019 National Science Foundation Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Award, a prestigious honor intended to help kick-start the careers of rising faculty with the potential to become academic leaders in both research and education.
Jun 27, 2019Andreas Ehnbom, a doctoral student in the Texas A&M Department of Chemistry, has been selected as one of 29 international participants in the 2019 CAS Future Leaders Program, an elite scientific leadership immersion opportunity provided through the American Chemical Society.
