Thanks to the largest fundraising year in University history, Wake Will: The Campaign for Wake Forest has raised more than $402 million of the $600 million Reynolda Campus goal, making it possible for students like Sarah Millsaps ('16) to say "yes" to Wake Forest.
From improving the lives of people suffering from debilitating diseases to turning waves in the Reynolds gym pool into electricity, Wake Forest researchers raised the bar of scientific excellence yet again during the 2013-2014 academic year.
Wake Forest Chemist Amanda Jones is the recipient of the National Science Foundation's prestigious Career Award. Jones will use the $390,000 in award funding to study powerful and environmentally friendly gold catalysts for use in the pharmaceutical industry.
A new compound created by Wake Forest chemists could help scientists probe the secrets behind deadly forms of cancer, Alzheimer’s and heart disease. The research is featured in the current edition of the Journal of the American Chemical Society.
