Dr. Duane Hatch, assistant professor of chemistry, recently gave an invited research talk at Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) in Los Alamos, New Mexico titled “Synthesis of Selenium- and Tellurium-Containing Tryptophan Analogs for the Elucidation of Protein Structure and Function.”
The research project he discussed is a collaborative effort between Hatch and LANL staff scientists, Pete Silks and Ricardo Marti-Arbona. Dr. Hatch is currently spending the summer at the Los Alamos lab working on research project along with two Belmont undergraduate students. Funding for this research comes from a successful Department of Energy grant.
