Chris Turlington awarded Discovery Institute grant

Dr. Chris Turlington, Associate Professor of Chemistry, was awarded $5,720 in funding from the Discovery Institute’s Center for Science and Culture (CSC) to synthesize water-soluble polymers that increase oxygen solubility in water, with the long-term goal of making artificial blood which would ease the dependence on donations and prevent blood shortages.

The Discovery Institute is a non-profit, non-partisan organization focused on research, education, action and cultural renewal and sponsors research in the sciences, humanities and public policy. The CSC specifically seeks long-term scientific and cultural change through cutting-edge scientific research and scholarship; education and training of young leaders; and advocacy for scientists, teachers, and students.

Congratulations on the award, Chris!
