2011 Plastino Alumni Undergraduate Research Fellows
The 2011 (fifth) class of Alumni Undergraduate Research Fellows was introduced by Prof. Klaus Theopold, Chair of the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, at a dinner held at the Courtyard Marriott on May 4th. The AURF program has been funded, from its outset, by UD alumnus David A. Plastino (BS/CHEM/78), recently retired Senior Vice-President of the Swiss bank UBS, who was present, as the guest of honor, along with most of the Fellow's parents.

Derek was recently selected as the recipient of an American Chemical Society Division of Organic Chemistry Summer Research Fellowship.
Mr. Plastino concluded the evening's program with some moving remarks concerning what we all can do for the common good with our financial resources that represent the difference between what we want and what we need.
