After 9 years at Saint Mary's College, Dr. Haas is moving back "home" to North Carolina! Dr. Haas accepted a position at Duke University as Associate Professor of the Practice in the Department of Chemistry. The Haas Lab will continue its research in bio inorganic chemistry with Duke University undergraduate students, and anyone else who … Continue reading The future looks Duke Blue for the Haas Lab!
Congratulations, graduates! And especially to our labmate, Ana Martinez! Ana graduated with honors and is planning to begin graduate school in Fall 2022 after a gap year and some much earned downtime. She has some ideas of where she will go to grad school (Dr. Haas is pushing for Duke!!! for purely selfish reasons), but … Continue reading Congratulations, Ana!
A new paper!
Thanks to all the students who have poured their hearts into writing projects in CHEM 342, and the faculty and staff at Saint Mary's and nationwide who made this cross-disciplinary award possible! Learn more here!!
The Biennial Conference for Chemical Education was hosted at University of Notre Dame this week. Dr. Haas was the poster organiser and presented two posters about education in chemistry.

This summer has been exciting and productive! We are collaborating with our friends from the Math Department, Dr. Kristin Kuter and Maria Escobedo, who are helping us to build and fit mathematical models to explain our data. We took advantage of the University of Notre Dame's Summer Undergraduate Research Symposium to share our research.
Here is our January 2018 Newsletter!
Our group made a second trip in 2017 to Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Lightsource (SSRL) to collect X-ray absorption spectroscopy (XAS) data and characterize the structures of a few human proteins' metal binding sites. Four undergraduate students (Morgan, Erica, and Kate), one graduate visiting scholar (Ewelina), Dr. Haas and baby Ariana made the trip to … Continue reading Winter break at SSRL!
Congratulations to Madison on her first paper, and to the rest of our terrific research team!! Madison Sendzik lead our group's efforts in the discovery and characterization of human serum albumin's Cu(I) binding site! Her important discovery is published in the American Chemical Society Journal, Inorganic Chemistry (10.1021/acs.inorgchem. 7b02397). Madison also wrote a free educational article … Continue reading Discovery of Cu(I) binding to HSA!
