Chemistry and Biochemistry News

4 lab techs

This summer, Biochemistry senior, Nicole Wenzel, is completing her Capstone internship with the New Jersey State Police. The first task that she worked on was a PDQ (Paint Data Query) project. The Royal Canadian Mounted Police maintain a worldwide database of automobile paints.  For a police lab to have access to this database, the lab must send in 60 paint samples every year. Nicole and her group went to a junkyard and collected the samples.  They then spent time in the lab analyzing and cataloging the paint samples in order to submit them to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.  Nicole is having a great start to the summer!  She is looking forward to a career in forensics.

Alex Bull (BS'18) participated in a panel discussion by recent graduates

The Summer Science Research Scholars have begun work in the labs since Memorial day, but took off a day to attend the Mid-Atlantic Regional Meeting of the American Chemical Society with faculty members Drs. Dwyer and Mason. The students attended a panel presentation of recent graduates, including Chemistry alum Alex Bull (BS'18) who offered perspective on what lies after graduation. After the panel, students participated in a picnic lunch and a chemistry team trivia contest and attended talks that interested them.
