ChemDraw site license purchased
Our department in cooperation with the TTU VPR, IT and TTUHSC administrations has arranged for the purchase of a site license for ChemDraw Pro – the molecular drawing and analysis software package (http://www.cambridgesoft.com/). See the Software Downloads section of http://eRaider.ttu.edu/ (or http://eRaider.ttuhsc.edu/) for details. A valid TTU or TTUHSC email address is required to download the software and obtain a personal license to use it on any TTU or TTUHSC faculty, staff, or student’s computer.
Prof. Bill Poirier awarded fellowship from the Hungarian Academy of Sciences
Prof. Bill Poirier has been awarded a Distinguished Guest Scientist Fellowship from the Hungarian Academy of Sciences.
