At the April ACS Meeting, Lynnda Watson, Forensics Supervisor at the Baltimore County Police Department, described a career as a Forensic Scientist.  She showed the various instruments used in a crime lab as well as the data obtained from these instruments.  She encouraged those interested in a career in Forensic Science to obtain a strong undergraduate background in science and then to continue with graduate work in Forensic Science.  In the course of her talk, she mentioned Stevenson's Forensic Science Master's Program.

Congratulations to Chemistry Senior Stephen Dennis on receiving the American Chemical Society Maryland (ACS) Section Student Award from Stevenson University.  Stephen was honored at the 2015 ACS Student Awards Luncheon this weekend.  He was recognized for his overall academic excellence in upper-level chemistry courses and laboratory experiences and his contributions to departmental activities and projects. 

Julia Wikoff Barker, BS Chemistry 2010, MS Forensic Sciences 2011, came for her annual visit to SU to speak in FSCI 101, Survey of Forensic Sciences.  Julia, a Federal Government Document Examiner, shared her expertise in questioned documents.  Students always enjoy learning from Julia's presentation and hearing her story on how she has been successful in the forensics community.

Austin Ikein has always expressed an interest in attending pharmacy school after graduation from SU.  He is very excited to be admitted to Howard University School of Pharmacy and will start there in August.  Austin credits his success in getting admitted to the Howard to his Capstone internship.  Austin worked at Giant Pharmacy and gained valuable experience.  He was then able to describe his experiences in the pharmacy during his pharmacy school interviews.  Congratulations Austin!  We're really excited for you.

Last summer, biochemistry junior Michele Collingsworth did research focused on fin whale calls detected in the waters off of North Carolina under the direction of Dr. Lynn Hodge.  Michele examined the rate at which fin whales produced two specific call types throughout the breeding season, as changes in production rate during this time might convey information on reproductive status. Michele presented her research at the 2015 Southeast and Mid-Atlantic Marine Mammal Symposium (SEAMAMMS) will just took place in Virginia Beach, VA.  This conference is a regional, student-oriented, scientific marine mammal meeting and Michele loved and benefitted from her experience.  Her trip was funded by the School of the Sciences.
