Chemistry and biochemistry student researchers will showcase their projects from noon-2 p.m. Friday, Dec. 11, in Dan Black Hall. The event is free and open to the public.

As part of a capstone course, about 40 students will present their research on such topics as anti-cancer drugs, fuel cells, chemistry related to atmospheric pollution, starch production, structure and function of proteins, the importance of metals in metabolic processes and chemical education related to understanding and improving student learning in chemistry.

Each semester, more than 100 undergraduates are involved in hands-on, laboratory research under the mentorship of faculty members, said Peter de Lijser, interim chair and professor of chemistry and biochemistry.


“All chemistry and biochemistry undergraduate students must participate in research as a degree requirement, and this capstone course is a clear example of a high-impact practice that leads to better retention and graduation rates,” de Lijser said
