Visiting Fulbright Scholar Brings Opportunity to Oberlies Research Group

Professor Nick Oberlies and the UNC Greensboro Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry will soon say a bittersweet goodbye to visiting Fulbright Scholar Vanida Choomuenwai. The impact of her research grant extends well beyond the six months the Thai chemist has been at UNCG. “Being a Fulbright and working here has opened a thousand doors and opportunities for me in my life,” says Choomuenwai.
