Natural Sciences Students Present Research at Central Regional American Chemical Society Meeting

Newly graduated LTU students Natalia Porcek (Molecular and Cell Biology 2012) and Justin Vail (Chemical Biology 2012) presented senior project research conducted under the supervision of Dr. Shannon Timmons at the Central Regional American Chemical Society meeting in Dearborn, MI.  Natalia’s project involved the development of a new organic chemistry laboratory experiment based on the popular drug warfarin, while Justin’s research involved the organic synthesis of novel carbohydrate-based drug candidates.  Both Natalia and Justin will be entering PhD programs this fall at Michigan State and Notre Dame, respectively.  Congratulations, Natalia and Justin!
