Kelly Nguyen

Miller Fellow's Article Featured in Nature Special Collection for Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2017

Kelly (Thi Hoang Duong) Nguyen (Miller Fellow 2016 - 2019) co-authored the article presented in Nature Collection of Research, Methods, Reviews and Comment to celebrate the award.

Richard Henderson

Miller Member wins the Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2017

Richard Henderson (Visiting Miller Professor 1993) shares the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 2017 with Jacques Dubochet and Joachim Frank for developing cryo-electron microscopy for the high-resolution structure determination of biomolecules in solution.

Jeffrey Townsend

Yale's New Center to Advance Biology Research

Jeffrey Townsend (Miller Fellow 2002 - 2005) is one of principal investigators of interdisciplinary team of Yale researchers to make headway on the next frontier of synthetic biology - re-engineering cells to produce novel synthetic polymers.

Jeff Long

Spin-Transition MOFs

Jeff Long (Miller Professor 2011) describes a research about cooperative MOF, a fundamental new mechanism that adsorbs carbon dioxide far better than other materials. The research was supported by the Center for Gas Separations Relevant to Clean Energy Technologies, an Energy Frontier Research Center operated jointly by UC Berkeley and Berkeley Lab and funded by the U.S. Department of Energy.

Omar Yaghi

Omar M. Yaghi wins 2017 Japan Society of Coordination Chemistry International Award

Omar Yaghi (Visiting Miller Professor 2009) has received this award for his pioneering research in Reticular Chemistry and the development of porous crystalline Metal-Organic Frameworks (MOFs) and Covalent Organic Frameworks (COFs).

Eve Ostriker

2017 Simons Investigator Award

Eve Ostriker (Visiting Miller Professor 2009) recognized by the Simons Foundation for her “major contributions to our understanding of the role of the interstellar medium in star formation and galactic structure and evolution, with a focus on the role of turbulence and on the effects of energy returned by massive stars to the interstellar medium.”
