Several ChBE undergraduate students participated in the Summer Undergraduate Research Symposium in the Watt Family Innovation Center on July 27th, showcasing the research they have done this summer. The symposium included two poster sessions for undergraduate researchers within the College of Engineering, Computing, and Applied Sciences.
Eleven students from our department took part in the event. The following is a list of these students and the titles of their posters:
Adam Beitz: Determining the Effects of Site Specific Linker Attachment on Activity for Enzyme Immobilization
Sara Edgecomb: Understanding the Mechanism for Fatty Acid Regulation in the Lipid Loving Yeast, Yarrowia Lipolytica
Calvin Martin: Characterization of Promoters in Yarrowia Lipolytica
Jenna Schoenfield: Increasing Enzyme Solubility by Gene Shuffling ATF Homologs
Sarah Smith: Growth Characterization of Cutaneotrichosporon Oleaginosus in Non-Conventional Feedstocks
Camilo Suescum: Laccase Expression in Yarrowia Lipolytica
Jack Tabb: Dynamic Regulation of the Production of Biodiesel
Meredith Bailey: Engineering Plasmid Performance in Yarrowia Lipolytica
Cheyenne Brady: Characterizing Growth of Oleaginous Yeast in Ionic Liquid Media
Andrew Bingham and Alexis Cocolas: Aqueous Phase Catalysis; Synthesis, Characterization and Troubleshooting
Congratulations to these students on the impressive research they have done this summer!
