Juniors Makik Naanaa, Robert Chen and Ryan Drazenovic (left to right) each completed a research project in the fall on a project related to the Hepatitis C Virus. Malik and Robert worked with Dr. Dawn Ward on the synthesis inhibitors of the virus using organic chemistry laboratory techniques. Ryan worked with Dr. Jason Sonnenberg on using computational molecular modeling to determine which compounds work best at bonding metals that may lead to the inhibition of the virus. They all presented their research at the School of the Sciences Poster Session in December.
