Michelle Buchanan manages national lab's energy projects Michelle Buchanan leads efforts to solve our energy needs Member Spotlight January 25, 2016 Analytical chemistry is ubiquitous in our daily lives, from medical procedures to certifying organic food to crime fighting. “When you go into the hospital and they want to look at what’s wrong with you, they do a blood test. That’s all analytical chemistry. People who are looking at organic foods, they’ll run tests on them to see if there are pesticides, to make sure they really are organic. Any package of food that you have has an analysis of what the calories are; that’s analytical chemistry,” says analytical chemist, Michelle Buchanan.

Kimi Grzyb is at the frontier of bioenergy education Kimi Grzyb is shaping bioenergy education Member Spotlight August 12, 2015 As world energy consumption grows, the business of bioenergy is expected to boom, and along with it a workforce of trained experts prepared to bring it to market. Yet to date, only a handful of universities and colleges offer bioenergy programs or degrees—and the scope of the curriculum varies widely among institutions. AAAS member Kimi Grzyb, a doctoral candidate at Oregon State University (OSU), is working to change that.
