Eight LVC students, accompanied by chemistry professor Dr. Walter Patton, made presentations at the 16th Annual Undergraduate Research Symposium in the Chemical and Biological Sciences at the University of Maryland Baltimore County on Saturday, Oct. 26. 

Sponsored by the National Institute of General Medical Sciences of the National Institutes of Health, the 2013 symposium featured 190 poster presentations by undergraduates from colleges and universities in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic.

Among other disciplines, posters highlighted undergraduate research in biology, chemistry, biochemistry, molecular biology, cell biology and computational chemistry. 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. 

 Benjamin Carpenter ’15, a member of a research group advised by Dr. Marc Harris, won a first-place award in his division for his project, “Complexation Studies of Bipyridine Aza-Crown Macrocycles.”
