Tim Zuehlsdorff, an assistant professor in computational chemistry, computes simulations of the optical properties of complex systems. His insights can help understand how light-absorbing molecules in complex environments, such as the process of photosynthesis or light absorption of rhodopsin, the low-light pigment in the retina.
Lab work plays a critical role in many scientific fields – which is why this year, as classes moved online, Oregon State’s science labs moved quickly to adapt.
OSU's Ecampus chemistry courses are some of the best in the nation. Here's how they did it.
Last May, Chemistry Department Head Mike Lerner and Instructor Marita Barth received prestigious Oregon State’s Ecampus awards.
For more than 15 years, the College has pioneered online chemistry courses that have proven popular among students, providing access to courses previously unavailable.
