Congrats to Angela for her outstanding work on developing bromodomain inhibitors. Her latest paper (https://pubs.acs.org/doi/10.1021/acsmedchemlett.9b00227) was hilighted as an in this issue "https://pubs.acs.org/doi/pdf/10.1021/acsmedchemlett.9b00389". Keep up the great work!
Both Angela and En-Chih were awarded a department Excellence Fellowship for the 2019/2020 academic year! It is great that their excellent accomplishments have been rewarded! Well-deserved and keep it up.

Congratulations to En-Chih Liu for winning the 2019 Gassman Award for an outstanding talk during the 3rd year graduate symposium: En-Chih spoke about this recently published E-CuAAC reaction: https://chem.umn.edu/news/four-students-earn-paul-and-gerda-gassman-awards
Angela Carlson was awarded an Honorable Mention for her outstanding presentation on Bromodomain inhibitors! Congrats Angela!
Angela's review on the interesting literature surrounding the Winstein Rearrangement was just accepted! Way to go Angela! Writing reviews is a LOT of hard work, but it was definitely worth the effort.

Congratulations to Angela, for her contribution to a paper in J. Med. Chem. in collaboration with the Pomerantz and Harki groups here at UMN, as well as the H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center and Research Institute!

Once again, on STEM day at the state fair, we taught everyone how cool chemistry is! From learning about ocean acidification to making a hidden message (or some slime!) everyone had a good time. Thanks to Market Science (https://marketsci.org/) for helping us spread our love of chemistry!
Carlson, A.S.; Calcanas, C.; Brunner, R.M.; Topczewski, J.J. Org. Lett., 2018, 20, 1604-1607.
The Topczewski lab is doing awesome! Two of our members, Amy Ott and Angela Carlson, were recognized at the first departmental seminar. Amy was one of the recipients of a third year Excellence in Graduate Studies Fellowship (the Wayland Noland Fellowship in particular), and Angela was honored for obtaining a 4.0 GPA last year. Wow! Looks like their hard work is paying off (figuratively and literally)!
On Saturday, the Topczewski lab once again showed the Midtown Market that chemistry is fun and interesting! Despite the wind, almost 100 people came to learn about ocean acidification, precipitation reactions, catalysis, and how to make slime!
