“The new Center for Science and Technology will allow us to expand the range of different questions we can ask. We already are asking important questions, and doing important research to answer them. But the new Center will allow us to be more expansive in our exploration. I think that’s true of all Chapman researchers.”
Chapman chemistry professors pride themselves on interacting with each student during lab sessions, but to get to those students they must weave in and out of alley like aisles. A molecular biologist is researching pancreatic cancer, but sometimes she grows cell cultures in a converted closet to protect them from contamination. Unquestionably, profound
In 1841, the ships that brought the last installment of Charles Dickens’ wildly popular serialized novelThe Old Curiosity Shop were met on the docks by clamoring, obsessed fans, eager to know the ending of this sentimental tale of family woe. “Some shouted, ‘Is Little Nell dead?’ to the sailors as the ship arrived,” says Richard

When it comes to a solar-powered future, where better to build leadership than in the heart of Southern California? “Abundant sunshine and an entrepreneurial culture make Orange County well-suited to become the sustainability capital of the world,” says Fred Smoller, Ph.D., associate professor of political science at Chapman University. Now Chapman
Professor Micol Hebron’s “Gallery Tally” project is getting up in faces and turning heads all across the country, using art to underscore how few women get their work shown in gallery exhibitions. Micol Hebron thought she was procrastinating, dawdling around and avoiding her office work
Chapman professors’ jealousy research gets real, with help from some historical and pop-culture characters.
During a season of war in their homelands, two Chapman biology students sustain an enduring lab partnership by focusing on friendship and a passion for research.
Professor Lia Halloran and her Chapman students go old-school exploring at the modern nexus of art and science.
