Students Present At National Chemistry Conferences
Eight chemistry students are the latest to discover the benefits of Wittenberg’s long-standing tradition of collaborative research. Accompanied by Kristin Cline, associate professor of chemistry and department chair, Neil Anderson ’10, Rachel Saylor ’10 and Christa Snyder ’11 attended the Pittsburgh Conference (PittCon) on Analytical Chemistry in Orlando, Fla., where they each presented a poster, Feb. 28-March 5, resulting from collaborative research with Cline. Billed as the “world’s annual premier conference and exposition on laboratory science,” PittCon “attracts nearly 20,000 attendees from industry, academia and government from 90 countries worldwide.”
Four other students, Ryan Carris ’10, Lydia Kisley ’10, Zachary Miller ’10 and David To ’11, traveled to San Francisco, March 21-25, to present papers at the American Chemical Society National Meeting based on summer research at Columbia University, the University of Colorado-Boulder and National Institutes of Standards and Technology, Syracuse University, and Stanford and IBM Almaden research laboratories, respectively.
