Chemistry. Professor Murphy’s research program focuses on the synthesis and optical properties of inorganic
nanomaterials, and on the local structure and dynamics of the DNA double helix.
PATRICK M. WOODWARD received B.S. degrees in both Chemistry and Engineering from Idaho State
University in 1991. He received a M.S. degree in Materials Science and a Ph.D. in Chemistry from Oregon State
University in 1996. He spent two years as a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Physics at Brookhaven
National Laboratory. In 1998, he joined the faculty of the Chemistry Department at The Ohio State University where he
currently holds the rank of Associate Professor. He has enjoyed visiting professorships at the University of
Bordeaux, in France, and the University of Sydney, in Australia. Professor Woodward has been an Alfred P. Sloan
Foundation Research Fellow and a National Science Foundation CAREER Award winner. He currently serves as an
Associate Editor to the Journal of Solid State Chemistry and as the director of the Ohio REEL program, an NSF
funded center that works to bring authentic research experiments into the laboratories of 1st and 2nd year chemistry
classes in 15 colleges and universities across the state of Ohio. Professor Woodward’s research program focuses on
understanding the links between bonding, structure and properties of solid state inorganic functional materials.
