Honors Science Students Keep Up Good Work this Spring


West 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.

The 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.
