Clarkson University Chemistry & Biomolecular Science Undergrads Win Awards & Present at Conferences
Three undergraduate students from Clarkson University's Biochemistry & Proteomics Lab, Kelly L. Wormwood '13, Katherine M. Beglinger '14 and Jarrod W. Mattingly '14, led by Chemistry & Biomolecular Science Assistant Professor Costel C. Darie, recently presented their work at the local Spring Undergraduate Research Experience (SURE) conference at Clarkson University and at the regional American Chemical Society Northern New York (ACS NNY) meeting at St. Lawrence University.
Their work was selected as best poster at the SURE conference (Mattingly), and at ACS NNY (Beglinger).
It was also presented at the American Society for Mass Spectrometry (ASMS) Meeting in June in Minneapolis, Minn. ASMS sponsors the annual International Conference on Mass Spectrometry and Allied Topics, attended by more than 6,500 scientists, from approximately 40 countries. Approximately 3,000 papers are presented as posters and talks.
The topic of the Biochemistry & Proteomics Lab posters included, among others, proteomic investigation of sera and saliva from children with Autism Spectrum Disorder and matched controls, which were presented by Beglinger, Wormwood and Mattingly; Ph.D. students Izabela Sokolowska, and Armand G. Ngounou Wetie; and professors Urmi Roy, Alisa G. Woods & Costel C. Darie.
Wormwood & Beglinger were two out of only 28 undergraduates at the meeting. Sokolowska & Ngounou Wetie applied for and won ASMS travel awards to participate in the meeting.
Clarkson University launches leaders into the global economy. One in five alumni already leads as a CEO, VP or equivalent senior executive of a company. Located just outside the Adirondack Park in Potsdam, N.Y., Clarkson is a nationally recognized research university for undergraduates with select graduate programs in signature areas of academic excellence directed toward the world's pressing issues. Through 50 rigorous programs of study in engineering, business, arts, sciences and health sciences, the entire learning-living community spans boundaries across disciplines, nations and cultures to build powers of observation, challenge the status quo, and connect discovery and engineering innovation with enterprise.
