Description: Dr. Rachel Holloway Lloyd was a Professor in the Nebraska Chemistry Department from 1887 to 1894. She was the first American woman to receive a PhD in Chemistry (Zurich, 1887). In 1916, Chemistry Prof. Mary Fossler put together a time capsule that honored the Department's legacy, including that of Dr. Lloyd. At the talk, you'll learn what Fossler placed in the time capsule.

Dr. Mark Griep is a Professor in the UNL Chemistry Department. His lab studies bacterial DNA replication proteins in a search for new antibiotics. He was awarded the Helen M.
