Twitter needs a 💔 response.
I ❤️’d this because it’s uplifting, but 💔 because this is where we are. 👇
Instead of making progress in my research, I’m collecting PPE from our lab to donate thanks to this administration’s colossal failure to respond to a pandemic. Grateful at least for the coordinated response from @FranzLabDuke and @DukeChemistry #AcademicChatter #COVID19

An important thread for undergrad chem majors anxious about next year’s applications to graduate/ professional/ medical schools. https://twitter.com/FranzLabDuke/status/1243534963561107456
Many colleges are rightly offering Pass/Fail grading this semester. These are impt tools to get the job done! But w/o knowing how programs & employers will view them, they present a stressful predicament for students. My thoughts as Dept Chair of Phd-granting @DukeChemistry 1/n
There have been a lot of good and important advice lately on conducting remote dissertation/thesis defenses. We compiled some of them as a resource for our students: https://bit.ly/2WTE0ff (incl. contributions from @awmerck, @ceri_weber, @AmandaGrittner, & @DukeOIT)
Yup, yours truly shows up in this video. I'd like to thank my Director & Producer for taking time away from home school google classroom for this project! Also thanks to @CasitaTrailer. We want to take you camping, but your service as @DukeChemistry Remote Headquarters is great!
Two of our faculty are highlighted in Duke's Data at a Distance. Yes, our Chair has chickens. See how Devils are making the best of their remote research & instruction and their new normal: https://today.duke.edu/2020/03/data-distance
