Jasinski Hits 300: A Co-author of Many Scientific Publications in a 33-year Academic Career

Professor Jerry Jasinski (Chemistry) has reached another milestone in his long academic career at Keene State College. In collaboration with his many regional, national and international scientific colleagues he now has co-authored over 300 research papers in major refereed scientific journals related to his work more recently focused on the X-ray crystallography of biologically and pharmaceutically significant molecules.

His recent award of $290,000 from the National Science Foundation for the purchase of a new state-of-the-art CCD single crystal X-ray diffractometer system has allowed him to extend his research activities to directly include KSC undergraduate students as well as faculty and students from six New England Colleges (Dartmouth, Middlebury, Williams, St. Anselm’s, Clark University, and the University of New Hampshire) and to significant collaborations with faculty and students at the University of Mysore and the University of Mangalore in India and the University of the West Indies-Cave Hill. “Working in a team oriented format bringing together ideas and frontier research problems involving crystallography with undergraduate, graduate and post-graduate students as well as faculty from around the globe is not only stimulating to me, but also to our KSC undergraduates who have gained and will continue to gain unprecedented exposure and interaction in such an environment.”

These kinds of professional collaborations allow for researchers to share data, tools, and ideas impacting areas of synthetic and biological chemistry, not only to systems of biological interest, but also to materials science applications as well. In this venue, KSC undergraduates become coauthors on these papers as they get involved in the many projects that are becoming available to them under the mentorship of Professor Jasinski. These opportunities have in the past and continue to pave the way toward selective entrance of these undergraduates to quality graduate schools or positions in science related industry or as science teachers in a most competitive world.

“We continue to push back the frontiers of science in the solid state and embrace an interaction of cooperation, collaboration and mutual respect with all levels of individuals and gender who have the desire and work ethic to succeed by giving them the chance to experience a hands-on approach to 21st century in science.”
