American ingenuity is alive and well—if you need proof, look no further than 3Rewery. The mock company was founded by CTAHR students with a simple goal: to create delicious alcoholic beverages, from Hawai‘i and for Hawai‘i. But it has responded to COVID-19 by putting its original plans on hold and instead shifting to the production of hand sanitizer.
Congratulations to Pratibha Nerurkar for winning the 2020 Faculty Award for Excellence in Mentoring Undergraduate Research and Creative Work!

When the COVID-19 epidemic hit Hawai‘i, Professor Samir Khanal of the Department of Molecular Biosciences and Bioengineering reached out to his friends and colleagues in Hong Kong, Mainland China, and Macao, asking them for face masks for a good cause. When they arrived, he generously donated them—all 1,000 masks!
Professor Qing Li, who has continually broken new ground in agricultural chemistry since joining CTAHR’s Department of Molecular Biosciences and Bioengineering in 1995, was awarded the 2020 UH Board of Regents’ Excellence in Research Award.
