22 Cal Poly Pomona Students Co-Author Paper with Chemistry and Biochemistry Faculty
The article entitled "Metabolism and Biodegradation of Spacecraft Cleaning Reagents by Strains of Spacecraft-Associated Acinetobacter" was recently published in the journal Astrobiology. This work, under the guidance of Dr. Rakesh Mogul and Dr. Gregory Barding of the Chemistry and Biochemistry Department, involved 22 student co-authors from Cal Poly Pomona-17 from the Chemistry and Biochemistry Department and 5 from Biological Sciences. The paper explores how cleaning reagents used in spacecraft assembly facilities may support the existence of microbial communities, an important factor in preventing biological contamination in future life-detecting missions in our solar system.

CPP Crystallography Co-Op Grand Opening
February 15th, 2018, hailed the grand opening of the Cal Poly Pomona Crystallography Co-Op. This facility houses a Bruker D8 Venture diffractometer that will be used by faculty and students for both research and instructional purposes. Acquisiton of this advanced instrumentation was made possible by a Department of Defense grant ($599,077) to Dr. Chantal Stieber (Pl) and her collaborators Dr. Kathryn McCulloch, Dr. Alex John, Dr. Bohdan Schatschneider and Dr. Hector Mireles. The facility, which is housed in the Chemistry and Biochemistry Department, is a result of the vision of Dr. Chantal Stieber, Assistant Professor.
