University of Sciences Symposium
Select students from Rosemont College recently presented at the 15th Annual Research Day at the University of the Sciences on April 6, 2017. Under the guidance of Rosemont faculty, Dr. Aikaterini Skokotas and Dr. Xiuni Wu, Rosemont students were quoted as “an impressive group” and one pair (Krushna Mantri ‘17 and Bianca Paranzino ‘18) won an Outstanding Poster Award including a cash prize. Other Rosemont students presenting included Archana Ganta ‘17 and Aaron Pinninti ‘17. All students are members of the biology and chemistry departments at Rosemont.
The goals of the annual Research Day are “to recognize the research efforts of faculty members and students by showcasing the diversity and growth of research pursuits on campus, and to honor Dr. John C. Krantz, Jr., through our annual distinguished lecture program.”
Research Day encourages and promotes communication and collaboration between investigators at the University of Sciences as well as other local colleges and universities. To prepare for this event, students from Rosemont helped in the design and organization of the poster information as well as preparing and practicing their presentation under the supervision of Dr. Skokotas and Dr. Wu.
Students presented their work before the 30th Annual John C. Krantz, Jr. Distinguished Lecture. This year’s topic, “Advancing Precision Medicine with the Science of Drug Transporters” was presented by Dr. Kim Brouwer, Associate Dean for Research and Graduate Education at the Eshelman School of Pharmacy within The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
Rosemont College congratulates our students who presented and all those who attended the 15th Annual Research Day!
