Chemistry Students Present at National Conference

Truman students from the Miller research lab in chemistry presented at the National American Chemical Society (ACS) meeting in Chicago, Illinois, Aug. 21-24. Bill Miller III, associate professor of chemistry, presented an oral presentation in a special symposium honoring his Ph.D. advisor, Dr. Adrian Roitberg from the University of Florida. Truman students Hannah Zimmerman, senior biology major, Georgia Hollingsworth, junior biochemistry and molecular biology major (BCMB), and Christine Chen, sophomore BCMB major, each presented a poster in the area of drug design and discovery using a variety of computational chemistry techniques. Zimmerman and Chen each won awards for outstanding undergraduate research poster in the computers in chemistry poster session.

This research was financially supported by multiple programs. The Office of Student Research TruScholars program helped Chen, and The Sharron Quisenberry Undergraduate Summer Research Program helped Hollingsworth. Travel to the conference was financially supported by Truman’s Chemistry Department.
