On May 2, 2014, Patricia Stone Wilkinson ‘88 of the University Instrumentation Center was awarded the UNH Chemistry Department’s Unsung Heroes award. The Chemistry Department gives this award for going above and beyond in service of the department.
An example of Pat’s outstanding support to the Chemistry Department is her collaboration with Chemistry Graduate Coordinator Howard Mayne on a new resume writing workshop. Pat has also worked with undergraduate students on their resumes as part of an undergraduate senior seminar class for Chemistry students.
UNH has recently received a NSF Major Research Instrumentation award for a new Focused Ion Beam Scanning Electron Microscope (FIB-SEM). The unit will be housed at the University Instrumentation Center (UIC) in the basement of Parsons Hall. The grant is a result of a collaborative proposal developed by investigators from Mechanical Engineering, Earth Sciences, Materials Science, and the UIC. Expect to hear more about this in February 2014.
