Congrats to Lauren Profitt for passing her Original Research Proposal and becoming the department’s newest doctoral candidate! She continues the Valentine lab tradition of receiving a Hawaiian shirt upon elevation to candidacy!
Corey’s series of tiron crystal structures was published this week in Acta Cryst E. This work was a collaboration with the Zdilla lab here at Temple. Great job, everyone!
Fun fact: Both Corey and Mike Gau currently have post-doctoral positions at the University of Pennsylvania!
We had a fantastic time at the 2018 Frontiers in Metallobiochemistry Symposium at Penn State! Thank you to the organizers for putting together a wonderful program and providing the opportunity for us to share our research.
The symposium also provided us with an extended Valentine lab family reunion! In addition to Ann and current graduate students Anna Gallo and Lauren Profitt, Ann’s former graduate students Kathryn Cole (Christopher Newport University) and Kate Buettner (Gettysburg College) attended along with their undergraduate students.
We wish Dr. Corey Herbst-Gervasoni the best as he starts a postdoc position in David Christianson‘s lab at the University of Pennsylvania. Thanks for the many years of being a great labmate and friend! Thankfully you’ll only be in West Philly, so we’ll see you soon!
Last evening was the ACS Philadelphia Local Section Young Chemists Committee Annual Poster Session, held at Temple University. Two of our undergraduate students (Jack and Ethan) and two of our graduate students (Anna and Lauren) presented. Great work everyone!
Congrats to Anna for winning the University of Pennsylvania Student Choice Award for favorite poster!
Congrats to all other winners, especially those from Temple University who won 1st and 3rd place in the graduate section:
Anna presented a poster at the Metals in Biology Gordon Research Conference and a talk at the Bioinorganic Chemistry Gordon Research Seminar on her work investigating the interactions between titanium dioxide and Rhodococcus ruber. If you have any questions or comments about our lab’s work, please let us know!

Today was the College of Science and Technology Winter Graduation! Again we congratulate Dr. Corey Herbst-Gervasoni for earning his PhD. The hooding ceremony makes it official!
We are happy to present Dr. Corey Herbst-Gervasoni after a wonderful thesis defense talk! We are so proud of you!
The lab has been busy this month! Ann gave talks at Drew University, Emory University, and Gettysburg College, while Anna and Lauren presented posters at the 5th Philadelphia Inorganic Colloquium at Swarthmore College.
If you would like to hear more about what we do, let us know!
