Two senior Chemistry majors recently presented posters of their research projects at the 245th national meeting of the American Chemical Society.

Andrew Owens (B.S. ’13) and David Williams-Young (B.S. ’13) traveled to New Orleans, La., from April 7–11, 2013, to attend and present at the national ACS meeting. The meetings, held twice a year in March/April and August, host over 14,000 chemists from around the world for five days of meetings, presentations, job fairs, and vendor showcases.

Owens, who works with John Ford, presented “Production of Cellulase from Tricoderma reesei by Solid State Fermentation on Mixed Waste Paper.”

Williams-Young, who works with Jaeju Ko, presented “Computational Approach to the Prediction of Enzyme Specificities.”
