Ashland Students and Faculty Present Research at National ACS Meeting

Four Ashland University students and three faculty members recently attended the 241st National Meeting of the American Chemical Society in Anaheim, California. At the meeting, Torrie Goudy (Chemistry ’12), Zach Il’Giovine (Biochemistry ’11), and Tiffany Weaver (Chemistry ’11) presented posters on the polymer research they have carried out with Dr. Perry Corbin. Likewise, Wendy Dria (Biology ’11) presented a poster on the proteomics research she has carried out under the direction of Dr. Andrew Greene and Dr. Rebecca Corbin. Dr. Brian Mohney and Dr. Rebecca Corbin also presented a poster at the conference describing a science camp that they have developed and have offered for the past five summers. The research presented was funded by the National Science Foundation and the Merck/AAAS Undergraduate Science Research Program, while the camp described is supported by the Kettering Fund and the Ashland County Community Foundation.
