Assistant Professor of Chemistry Dr. Duane Hatch was recently reappointed as a guest scientist in the Bioscience Division, Group B-11, at Los Alamos National Laboratory in Los Alamos, New Mexico.
Originally appointed last June, Hatch’s continued status as a guest scientist allows him to pursue research interests with Laboratory staff scientists Dr. Pete Silks and Dr. Ricardo Marti-Arbona. Hatch is currently spending the summer at the lab working on the synthesis and incorporation of selenium and tellurium-containing amino acids for the elucidation of protein structure and function. Funding for this research comes from a successful Department of Energy proposal submitted by Hatch in January.
