Chemistry Chair Presents Research at Focus on Faculty

Daniel W. Armstrong, the Robert A. Welch Chair in Chemistry, discusses “Testing for Performance Enhancing Drugs: The Case of a Chiral Stimulant” in the Focus on Faculty presentation at noon Wednesday, Jan. 23, in the sixth floor parlor of the Central Library. A light dessert reception follows the talk.

He will give an overview of performance-enhancing drug types and effects and a recently banned stimulant that was a component of one of the largest-selling nutritional supplements in the world.

Dr. Armstrong received the UT Arlington 2012 Distinguished Record of Research or Creative Activity award and has more than 450 publications. He has been named by the Scientific Citation Index as one of the world’s most highly cited scientists and is considered the “father” of micelle and cyclodextrin-based separations.
