Wesley College students traveled to Dallas Texas on March 16 - 20 to present undergraduate research. Eleven Wesley students presented eight posters each detailing the outcomes of their chemistry research projects mentored by Dr. Malcolm J. D'Souza, professor of chemistry. Biological Chemistry students Tabitha Lambert, Kyle Gillespie, Kaylee Miller, Gabriel Fernandez-Bueno, Victor DeBarros II, Brett Sansbury, Catherine Gross, Jasbir Deol, and Laura Malinowski as well as biology major Maryeah Pavey presented eight chemistry posters in the undergraduate section of the Division of Chemical Education at the 247th National American Chemical Society Meeting. Mathematics major Benjamin Barile's project was co-mentored by Dr. Frank Fiedler, associate professor of mathematics. At this conference, five of the posters presented by the students earned ACS award-certificates, four from the Division of Environmental Chemistry and one form the Division of Analytical Chemistry. The five posters that earned recognition were presented by Barile, Fernandez-Bueno, DeBarros, a group poster by Sansbury and Lambert and a group poster by Deol and Miller. All of the chemistry research projects at Wesley College are sponsored by the DE-INBRE and DE-EPSCoR grants.
