Congratulations to James Brault (Dr. Friesen’s Lab)! His thesis, “Characterization of Cytidylyltransferase Enzyme Activity Through High Performance Liquid Chromatography,” was selected by the Graduate Studies Directors for the college award in Group A, Sciences and Mathematics. His thesis, along with two others (Group B, Social Sciences, and Group C, Humanities), will be sent to the Graduate School for the next stage in the James L. Fisher Master’s Thesis Competition.
A big “Thank you!” goes out to the Illinois Heartland ACS volunteers, including Greg Ferrence and Frank Shaw, who helped out at Science Rocks! at the Peoria Riverfront Museum on September 3rd. The museum attendance during the event was about 1400 people, many of whom stopped by to check out the science displays.
