Science Students Keep Up Good Work this Spring
Windsor, N.J. - MCCC Biology and Chemistry Honors research
students were busy this past semester carrying out exciting
projects at Rider University. They presented their results
at a lunchtime presentation in early May before a packed room
of fellow science students and faculty members.
Chemistry student Adrie Kornasiewicz presented "Synthesis
of 2-Vinylpyridine Derivatives for Sulfonamide Research,"
under the guidance of Dr. Danielle Jacobs; biology student
Shelly Djoufack presented "Marmorkrebs Crayfish: A
Search For Its Origin," under the guidance of Dr.
Phillip L. Lowrey; and chemistry student Ron Russell III,
who completed his second project, presented "Give
Me Some Sugar: The Synthesis and N-Glycosylation of Pyrroles,"
under the guidance of Dr. Bruce Burnham.
Honors Research Program is coordinated through MCCC biology
and chemistry faculty members. To
participate, students must have at least a 3.0 GPA in their
science classes, be recommended by an MCCC professor, and
devote a minimum of six hours per week at the research institute.
