Maximilien Van Haaster (B.Ed. Kinesiology 2016) competes in Rio Olympics with Canadian Fencing team

Maximilien Van Haaster (B.Ed. Kinesiology ’16), of our Department of Kinesiology and Physical Education, is one of three McGill athletes representing Canada at the Summer Olympic Games in Rio, August 5th to 21st. 

From Montreal, Quebec, Van Haaster won an individual bronze medal at the 2013 Pan American fencing Championships, and finished fifth in both individual and team foil events at the 2015 Pan Am Games in Toronto.

Controlling the photoreactivity of the solids, especially metal complexes, coordination polymers (CPs) and metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) is a challenging task in the past.

Chemical Society Seminar: Dr. Gabriela Schlau-Cohen - Single-molecule exploration of the regulation of photosynthetic light harvesting

4Oct201613:00
to

Maass Chemistry Building Rm 10, 801 rue Sherbrooke Ouest, Montreal, QC, H3A 0B8, CA

In photosynthetic light harvesting, absorbed energy migrates through a protein network to reach a dedicated location for conversion to chemical energy. This energy flow is efficient, directional, and, in oxygenic photosynthesis, regulated.
