June 2020

Dr. Franz and Cody receive the Science Translation and Innovative Research (STAIR) grant! This grant will support an ongoing project to develop an algae-based ruminant feed supplement that will both decrease the methane emissions of cattle production and increase feed efficiency.

“Developing an Algae Ruminant Feed Additive to Reduce Methane Emissions”
Methane emissions from cattle and other ruminants contribute significantly to greenhouse gas emissions. Annaliese Franz and her team are developing an algae-based ruminant feed supplement that will both decrease the methane emissions of cattle production and increase feed efficiency.

Jake’s paper detailing enantioselective Si-H insertion reactions of diarylcarbenes for the synthesis of silicon-stereogenic silanes is published in the Journal of the American Chemical Society!

Celebrating the new year with a Franz Lab photoshoot, jump shot and all! There are a lot of exciting improvements/additions being made to the Chemistry building so a picture with all of it in the background seemed appropriate. We have many new members, both graduate and undergraduate, who we are excited to start working with. Welcome to the lab!

Welcome to the lab David Coppage and Adilene Bernal Sánchez!
