Recent PhD Graduate Jeremy Copperman Featured in Around-the-O

A discovery in Marina Guenza’s UO chemistry lab, published in a major physics journal, is already being tapped by outside scientists working on a new medical treatment for tuberculosis.

The UO research, however, included a detour. Jeremy Copperman, a doctoral student leading it, was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma in the final year of his doctoral studies in physics. His work slowed amid six months of chemotherapy.

Copperman, with his health restored, graduated and left the UO for a postdoctoral position in Wisconsin. His lab mates, graduate student Eric Beyerle and postdoctoral associate Mohammadhasan “Hadi” Dinpajooh, proceeded with the project, which was detailed in a paper published in the journal Physical Review Letters.
