Wabash College Assistant Professor of Chemistry Laura Wysocki was awarded a $40,000 grant from the Research Corporation for Science Advancement (RCSA) in February. Beginning in July, the two-year grant will support a project centered around research on fluorescent dyes titled, “From Dark to Light: Versatile Synthesis of Fluorogenic Small Molecule Sensors and Enzyme Substrates.”

The grant is one of 33 Cottrell College Science Awards given out specifically for undergraduate institutions and research.
