Drs. Robert Carey (biology) and Walter Patton (chemistry) accompanied four LVC research students to the 15th Annual Undergraduate Research Symposium in the Chemical and Biological Sciences at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County on Saturday, Oct. 20, 2012. Three out of the four students won awards for poster presentations in their respective divisions.

Stephanie Velardo '13 (right), a chemistry major, won a first place award for her work, “Ruthenium tris-bypyridine oligimers as host systems for alkali and alkaline earth guests,” performed with faculty mentor Marc Harris of the chemistry department.

Travis Bicher '13, a biology major, also won a first place award for his work, “Production and characterization of the dimerization domain of E. coli GMP synthetase,” performed with faculty mentor Walter Patton.

Earning a second place award was Nate Helper '13, a biochemistry and molecular biology major, for his work, “Selaginella moellendorffii has a reduced and highly conserved expansin superfamily with genes more closely related to angiosperms than bryophytes,” performed with faculty mentor Robert Carey.

Alyssa Mitchell '13, a chemistry major, also presented her work “Exploring non-innocent ligand behavior in Zn (II) diimine complexes.” Alyssa performed her research at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, Colo. during summer 2012 when she was a summer researcher in Colorado State’s National Science Foundation-sponsored Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program.

The undergraduate research symposium was sponsored by the National Institute of General Medical Sciences of the National Institutes of Health and featured 202 poster presentations by undergraduates from colleges and universities in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic region. Student researchers attended from both small colleges like LVC and top research universities such as Johns Hopkins and the University of Pennsylvania.

Posters highlighted undergraduate research in areas of biology, chemistry, biochemistry, molecular biology, cell biology and computational chemistry, among others. Students were judged on the quality of their presentation, their understanding of the work presented, their general knowledge of science in the area of their work and the level to which their individual efforts contributed to the findings presented and overall work accomplished.
