Mayo Clinic Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship:

We are reaching out to you with the hope that you can help us make Texas A&M University students aware of the Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF). This program, sponsored by the Mayo Clinic Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, is ideal for college students considering, or curious about, biomedical research careers.

By immersing themselves in a research lab, the SURF offers students an exciting way to build their skills as young scientists and test their inclinations toward research. They will have the opportunity to be mentored by top-notch scientists, to conduct exciting real-world research, and to form lasting relationships with faculty, postdoctoral fellows, graduate students and other SURF participants.

The SURF award is $6,000, and the 2021 program is scheduled to run from Tuesday, June 1 through Friday, August 6. Applications for the program must be received by February 1, 2021.

Students can apply to the program if they:

  • Have completed two or three years at a U.S. college or university at the time the SURF program begins
  • Have a grade point average of at least 3.0 (4.0 scale)
  • Are seriously considering a biomedical research career as a Ph.D. or M.D.-Ph.D.

We are eager to bring together a wide variety of talented, motivated students from all ethnic, geographic, educational and economic groups. Applicants from underrepresented minority groups are strongly encouraged to apply. If you would share the attached flyer and forward this email to colleagues and students who may be interested in this program, or who can help us disseminate this information, we would be most appreciative.

Brief application instructions that can be found below, information about the SURF is available online – https://college.mayo.edu/academics/biomedical-research-training/summer-undergraduate-research-fellowship-surf/ – or by contacting Glenda Mueller at gmueller@mayo.edu or 507-284-3862.

Howdy!

If you are planning to register for 100- or 200-level chemistry courses for the Spring 2021 semester, please read the following information about modes of instruction, registration errors, and restricted sections.

1) 100- level courses mode of instruction

CHEM 119 and CHEM 120 – All Chemistry 119 and Chemistry 120 lectures will be delivered in a synchronous remote format.

All Chemistry 119 and Chemistry 120 laboratories will be offered synchronously in either remote or face-to-face formats. The laboratory sections will be labeled as either face-to-face or remote. Remote students should not enroll for a face-to-face lab section.

Switching from face-to-face to remote will not be accommodated this semester.

Students who have to quarantine or who have a medical excuse will participate in the excused absence make-up laboratory program.

  • Online lecture; online lab: CHEM119 401-416
  • Online lecture; face-to-face lab: CHEM119 501-516
  • Online lecture; online lab: CHEM 120  401-488
  • Online lecture; face-to-face lab: CHEM120 501-596

CHEM 107

There are three sections of Chemistry 107 lecture scheduled. One of the three sections (502) will be face-to-face only. The other two sections (501 and 503) will be delivered in a synchronous remote format.

  • Online lecture: CHEM107 501, 503
  • Face-to- face lecture: CHEM 107-502

CHEM 117 

All Chemistry 117 laboratory sections will be offered synchronously in either remote or face-to-face formats. The laboratory sections will be labeled as either face-to-face or remote. Remote students should not enroll in a face-to-face lab section. Switching from face to face to remote will not be accommodated this semester. Students who have to quarantine or who have a medical excuse will participate in the excused absence make-up laboratory program. Although CHEM107/117 are two separate courses, they are co-requisites. Students must register for the courses in the same registration submission (on the same click — NOT one after the other), or else they will receive a Prerequisite/Test Score error.

  • Online lab: CHEM117 401-422
  • Face-to-face lab: CHEM 117 501-522

2) Students missing 100-level laboratories

Students who are missing a lab component from the former CHEM101 /111 or CHEM102/112 sequence should contact advising@chem.tamu.edu for instructions in enrolling in a CHEM289 course as a laboratory substitute.  Advisors will need to request a Curricular Exception to accommodate these courses in degree plans and students will need to contact departments that require those laboratory courses as prerequisites for prerequisite overrides.

3) Organic Laboratories CHEM237/238/242 mode of instruction

  • CHEM237 and CHEM238 Organic chemistry labs will be delivered in either face-to-face or remote formats for the Spring 2021 semester.
  • CHEM 242 will be entirely online with synchronous meetings.

FACE-TO-FACE LABORATORIES

For face-to-face CHEM237 and CHEM238 lab courses, the format listed on Howdy is Mixed: F2F and Remote Meetings.  For these classes the lab experiment meetings are all F2F (in person) only.  The prelab instruction are remote only; see more about this below.

Students are required to attend and perform the lab experiment in their assigned lab room and time for the lab sessions. With the removal of the prelab component from the lab class meeting, the actual lab meeting will be limited to 1 hour and 50 minutes.

Switching from face-to-face to remote lab instruction will not be accommodated for the spring semester.  Students who have to quarantine or who have a medical excuse will participate in the excused absence make-up laboratory program.

Pre-lab Instruction: The prelab sessions for face-to-face labs will be offered on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday at several times throughout the day and early evening in preparation for the next week’s experiments.  Important: Approximately one week before the start of the spring semester students will get an email from the organic lab program asking them to choose a day and time to attend these online-only prelab modules. The choice of time and day will be permanent and cannot be changed.  Students will attend this PreLab session each week before the scheduled experiment.  These sessions are online only and will last no longer than 50 minutes; an asynchronous prelab option will not be available for the spring semester.

  • Face to Face Lab + Remote Pre Lab: CHEM237 501-522
  • Face-to-Face Lab + Remote Pre-Lab: CHEM238 501-568

ONLINE LABORATORIES

There is also an online-only choice for the CHEM237 and CHEM238 organic labs for the Spring 2021 semester. The online sections will meet synchronously once a week for a 2-hour 50-minute session. Students who enroll in a remote lab section will not have to option to switch to face to face instruction during the semester.

  • Remote-only Lab CHEM237: 523-540
  • Remote-only Lab: CHEM238 569-593

4) Avoiding registration errors for labs

Students wishing to enroll in CHEM119 or CHEM120 or any chemistry laboratory will need to complete the lab safety acknowledgement before registration. Students who haven’t done this will get a “Student Attribute Error” upon attempting to register for a laboratory course.

5) Restricted Courses

A few sections of CHEM120 and CHEM228 will be restricted to honors students or chemistry majors

Restricted to honors students:

  • CHEM 120-201-203
  • CHEM 228-200

Restricted to Chemistry Majors:

  • CHEM 120-449, 450, 500
  • CHEM 228-501

6) Seat Release

Seats are added throughout pre-registration to 100 and 200 level chemistry courses as courses fill, usually in the morning and evening. We can not promise and will not force any student into a particular section. Students should register for a section that is available during their registration time period.

7) Prerequisites

Prerequisites are enforced. The Department of Chemistry does not enter prerequisite overrides for planned or in progress prerequisites from other institutions. Once students have completed the prerequisite course, they may send an unofficial transcript that clearly shows their name, the institution, course, and final grade to advising@chem.tamu.edu, indicating for what course they would like a prerequisite override entered and their UIN. We will enter the prerequisite override, but will not force students into closed classes.

Undergraduate student awards through Society of Toxicology (10/26 deadline)

The Society of Toxicology (SOT) invites you to encourage your undergraduate students to consider a career in toxicology. We offer students the opportunity to learn more about toxicology by attending special programs for undergraduate students at the SOT Annual Meeting in Orlando, Florida, March 14–18, 2021.

Toxicologists address critical issues and make the world a healthier and safer place by studying the effects of physical, biological, and chemical agents on people, animals, and the environment. Many students who learn about the discipline of toxicology are excited about career opportunities that involve research and the potential to make a positive contribution to health and safety.

You play a key role in our efforts to identify talented students who otherwise may not be aware of the rewarding career opportunities in toxicology. Please print and display the Undergraduate Programs flyer, forward information from this message to students and your networks, and actively encourage your students to apply for the awards described below.

For students and faculty with research data to present, the Abstract Submission deadline is December 1. In addition to research abstracts, we encourage educators to submit an abstract to share education experiences and innovations during the Annual Meeting education poster session. Questions?
