Rosemont Science Students Win Again
Rosemont Students took first prize, two years in a row at the 20th Annual Undergraduate Research Symposium for Biological and Chemical Sciences.
On October 14th, James Hughes ‘17 and Nathan Navarro’18 presented the results of their research project on yeast genetics under the direction of Aikaterini Skokotas, Ph.D. , Associate Professor of Biology and Biology Department Chair, at the 20th Annual Undergraduate Research Symposium for Biological and Chemical Sciences at UMBC. Rosemont is proud to announce that James and Nathan won first prize in the biological science section! Dr. Skokotas' research team won first prize last year as well!
The Symposium seeks to display the diverse array of student-committed endeavors and foster the communication of their relevant novel results and concepts. This year, the event featured 262 student contributions in undergraduate research in all areas of chemistry, biology and biochemistry with the understanding that progress at the chemical and biological interface requires cross-fertilization from the broadest possible spectrum of these disciplines.
