Professor M. Stanley Whittingham wins
We are a medium-size chemistry department with a great atmosphere of cooperation. Our size facilitates close interaction among faculty and between research groups and creates a setting that's appealing to many students and in which they can thrive professionally.
Our undergraduate program offers BA and BS degrees with a BS/American Chemical Society certification option and with emphases in biophysical and materials chemistry. Undergraduate participation in research is actively encouraged. We also participate in a five-year BS/MS program in materials chemistry and we jointly sponsor the biochemistry degree program with the Department of Biological Sciences.
We offer both MSc and PhD research programs as well as MA and MAT degrees. In addition to the traditional areas of analytical, inorganic, organic and physical chemistry, we have faculty in a number of fertile cross-disciplinary areas, such as bioanalytical, bioinorganic, bioorganic and biophysical chemistry; electrochemistry; environmental chemistry and materials chemistry.

A collaborative work from the Qiang group and the Vugmeyster group at CU Denver has been published on PNAS. This work solved the very first molecular structure of a post-translational modified beta-amyloid fibril. This site-specific modification, with the phosphorylation at residue S8 on Abeta sequence, induces the formation of a more-ordered N-terminal fibril structure with more thermodynamic stable core. In addition, this modification leads to rapid cross-seeded fibrillation to the wild-type Abeta, which may accelerate the pathological amyloid deposition.
