No more needles: Union graduate develops inhalable insulin

For most asthma sufferers, an inhaler is a vital, often life-saving device designed to deliver much-needed medicine to lungs gasping for air. But Sam Shum, who developed a passion for chemistry and research while an undergraduate student at Union College, knew inhalers could be a lot more.

Students research new ways to teach genetics

When students in Frankie Rose's biology classes are asked to finish all of their Brussels sprouts, they can say with scientific certainty why they dislike them, thanks to new teaching methods developed by Rose and a team of Union College students and alumni.

Reinventing protein structure research

When chemistry professor and Union College graduate John Engen ’94 realized the equipment he needed to move forward with his hydrogendeuterium exchange mass spectrometry research on protein structure didn’t yet exist, he created the necessary tools by patching together pieces of existing laboratory equipment.

And when his research surpassed the limitations of those customized tools, he approached the biotechnology firm Waters Corporation with his idea to use liquid chromatography technology to separate protein molecules in a way that had never before been done.
