It looks like 2016 is off to a great start with plenty of CBC highlights to celebrate. We congratulate Assistant Professor John Jewett for being awarded a prestigious Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) award from the National Science Foundation (NSF). Kudos also go out to winners of the 2015 CBC Catalyst Awards honoring the top five CBC faculty with the highest scores for achievements in entrepreneurship as judged by Tech Launch Arizona. Lastly, we proudly recognize Dr. Hamish Christie and the CBC Organic Chemistry Lab personnel for putting the "Tree" in chemistry. Enjoy!

Zachary Arnstein (BS in Chemistry, 2014) I got a job as a processing technician at CBR (Core Blood Registry) Systems in Tucson which is a privately owned stem cell bank. I was soon promoted to Quality Control department where we make sure the lab runs at its highest performance capabilities. And as a side note I am happy to say I do have to use calculus in analyzing the data we get.
