University of Michigan Chemistry
with Taylor Soucy
Jen Heemstra, Associate Professor at Emory University, visited the University of Michigan in January to talk a bit about her research designing DNA biosensors and a lot about her perspectives on failure, self-care, and how being an academic is a little like being an athlete
ICARUS gets ready to fly
The ICARUS detector, part of Fermilab’s Short-Baseline Neutrino Program, will officially start its hunt for elusive sterile neutrinos this fall. The international collaboration led by Nobel laureate Carlo Rubbia successfully brought the detector online and is now collecting test data and making final improvements.
