Nadine Borduas of the Abbatt/Murphy group is the recipient of the 2014 Adel S. Sedra Distinguished Graduate Award. Professor Jon Abbatt said, ďwith a remarkably positive attitude, Nadine contributes to the University widely, more than any other graduate student I have known. Her enthusiastic leadership qualities arise naturally and are exhibited not only in our research group, but across the Department and beyond." The Montreal native said she is "really proud" to win the award, telling her parents "it was like winning the gold medal in the Olympics, though my goal was not winning but continuing to do what I love every day."

In 2011, Geoffrey Ozin co-founded with Todd Siler ArtNano Innovations. A natural resonance - energy is color and color is energy - provides a dynamic thread that fuses the aesthetics of Geoffrey Ozin's science with the beauty of Todd Silerís art, to create hot, bold and thought-provoking visualizations of the nano world.
These ArtNano works are envisioned to catalyze and cultivate curiosity, imagination, wonder and innovation! Using multimedia artworks and aesthetic experiences, they aim to explore the possibilities of nature-inspired innovations in nanoscience and nanotechnology that can benefit humankind by meeting our global challenges.
This project considers new ways of synthesizing and responsibly applying nanomaterials. It also critiques the significant impact these developments are having on the built and natural environment - and on humanity - taking into account the "materials to nanomaterials" paradigm shift thatís underway today, http://www.artnanoinnovations.com/.
The inaugural artnano works, NanoWorld, sponsored by Ronald Feld... more

Copolymerization of Metal Nanoparticles: A Route to Colloidal Plasmonic Copolymers
The self-assembly of colloidal analogues of molecular copolymers can greatly benefit fundamental studies of molecular copolymerization and nanotechnology. In their Communication E. Kumacheva, et al. present microscopy and spectroscopy analyses to develop design rules and a kinetic model for the growth of colloidal random and block copolymers made from plasmonic nanorods with different lengths and compositions.
