Students in chemistry and geology recently attended national conferences to
present the results of their original research.
Three students presented their research results at the 231st American Chemical
Society National Meeting, held March 26 to 30 in Atlanta, GA.
The students were accompanied by Assistant Professor of Chemistry Samantha Glazier.
The students presented the following posters:
- Matthew D. Maynard '07, of Russell, NY (Advisor Assistant Professor of
Chemistry Neil Law), "Exploring metallacrowns: Synthesizing metallacrowns with
- Jane W. Mutoru '06, of Nyahururu, Kenya (Advisor Associate Professor of
Chemistry Nadia Marano), "Insolubility of T-cell receptors in human Jurkat T-Cells"
- Ariel Riezenman '08, of Browsville, TX (Advisor Samantha Glazier), "DNA binding
studies of ruthenium polypyridyl complexes and the role of Sephadex"
Two students gave presentations of their senior research at the Northeastern
Geological Society of America conference in Harrisburg, PA, on March 21:
- Stephanie Peek '06, of Lewiston, NY, "Evaluating the effectiveness of Flinn's
k-value and Lode's ratio using synthetic strain data."
- Kevin Emblidge '06, of Queensbury, NY, "An investigation of Adirondack debris
flows using GIS."
