About

The Lab Report is the news blog of the Emory University Department of Chemistry. The Department of Chemistry at Emory University believes that the best teaching and research happens in the context of a scientific community. Together, we engage in creative problem-solving at the molecular level. Our collaborative research themes–catalysis, sustainable energy, and living/nonliving interfaces— are anchored by foundational strengths in biomolecular, inorganic, organic, and physical chemistry.

Wuest Group Featured in ChemBioChem

Research from the Wuest Group is featured on the cover of the August issue of ChemBioChem. The article is “Efflux Pumps Might Not Be the Major Drivers of QAC Resistance in Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus.” The inside cover picture shows that cell-membrane composition might be the primary driver of bacterial resistance to quaternary ammonium compounds (QACs). Our findings …
