IUP Represented at 235th ACS Meeting in New Orleans

Both an IUP chemistry department student and faculty presented research at the recent 235th National Meeting of the American Chemical Society in New Orleans, LA (Apr 6-10).

Mr. Robert Bauer, a biochemistry major, presented a poster of his project that he completed during his R.E.U. summer research at the University of Buffalo. The poster, "DNA structure-selective interactions of Zn(II) tetraazamacrocycle with appended acridine", was authored jointly with Janet Morrow, of SUNY Buffalo.

Dr. Nate McElroy gave the invited oral presentation "QSAR at the undergraduate institution and a model of air-to-blood partition coefficients for small organic molecules". Part of this presentation was a review of the cheminformatics research completed by Mr. Sean Smith, who recently completed his Masters thesis in the department.
