People at Laurier
Dr. Stephen MacNeil, assistant professor of chemistry shares insight on teaching organic chemistry -- simply defined as the chemistry of carbon compounds. From the medicine we take, to the shampoos we use, to the food we eat, the widespread distribution of both natural and synthetic organic chemicals touches all our lives, and is the reason organic chemistry is both relevant and fascinating. MacNeil is the recipient of the Wilfrid Laurier University 2011 Award for Teaching Excellence.
