Shane Lamos, Christina Chant and Bret Findley of the Saint Michael’s chemistry faculty all attended the 25th Biennial Conference on Chemical Education at the University of Notre Dame at the beginning of the month. Christina gave a talk, Bret gave a talk and presented a poster -- talk title “Introducing Problems Involving Environmental Topics to Enhance Learning and Interest in Physical Chemistry" and poster title “Using Thermo-Solvatochromism to Measure the Impact of Temperature on Solvent Stabilization” -- and Shane continued his work writing a national organic chemistry exam for the American Chemical Society. The Biennial Conference on Chemical Education (BCCE) is a national meeting sponsored by the Division of Chemical Education (DivCHED) of the American Chemical Society (ACS). The Conference is designed for those who teach chemistry at all levels.

Shane Lamos of the chemistry faculty attended the American Chemical Society National Meeting in New Orleans on March 17 with chemistry colleague David Heroux and several students who presented posters and talks on their summer research. Shane did “some very interesting and important work with the ACS Exams Institute,” David reports.

Shane Lamos, associate professor of chemistry, recently was co-author with four others on a research paper, “Multiplexed Analysis of Cage and Cage Free Chicken Egg Fatty Acids Using Stable Isotope Labeling and Mass Spectrometry,” appearing in the journal Molecules (2013, 18, 14977-14988). Shane also received a second patent for the use of his metabolomic labeling reagents (Lamos, S. M. and nine others, “Ionizable Isotopic Labeling Reagents for Relative Quantification by Mass Spectrometry” U.S. Patent #7,982,070, 2011 and U.S. Patent #8,563,777, 2013). He will be traveling to the American Chemical Society National Meeting (March 16-20) in Dallas, TX, where one of his students, Katherine Schutt '14, will present the latest results from their research. Her poster is titled "Biomarker Analysis Using Mixed Isotope Labeling With Mass Spectrometry.” (March 2014)
Shane Lamos, assistant professor of chemistry, gave presentations in November 2011 at two venues: On Nov. 14, 2011, he gave a talk at the Eastern Analytical Symposium in Somerset, N.J., titled "Mixed Isotope Labeling for the Relative Quantification of Metabolites and Biomarkers.” The talk was given in honor of the EAS award for Outstanding Achievements in Mass Spectrometry presented to Dr. Ian Blair of the University of Pennsylvania. On Nov. 30, 2011, he gave a talk in the Current Topics in Environmental Science Speaker Series at Johnson State College titled "Relative Quantification of Metabolites and Biomarkers.” And this past July, Shane was part of team of researchers that was granted U.S. Patent #7,982,070 tilted "Ionizable Isotopic Labeling Reagents for Relative Quantification by Mass Spectrometry".
