Nine undergraduate students and two faculty members from the Department of Biochemistry, Chemistry, and Physics presented research at the 2022 WNY ACS Undergraduate Research Symposium at Buffalo State College in Buffalo, N.Y., on Saturday, April 9.

John Pinti (B.S. Chemistry, ’22), from Dr. Christopher Stoj’s lab, gave a talk titled Towards Encapsulation and Release of Fe(NOTP) in Liposomes by Ultrasound based on collaborative work with the University at Buffalo with applications for magnetic resonance imaging and the development of theranostic technologies.

Kristian Gunsalus (B.S. Biochemistry, ’23) and Chloe Schrier (B.S. Biochemistry, ’22), also from Dr. Stoj’s lab, presented a poster examining the magnetic and colorimetric properties of metal complexes in yeast.

From Dr. Luis Sanchez’s lab, Alexander Slojkowski (B.S. Biochemistry, ’24) presented a poster on his work related to the synthesis of cage molecules. Catherine Larrow (B.S. Chemistry, ’24) and Peyton Sobolewski (B.S. Chemistry, ’23) presented posters on the formation of two different elusive molecular moieties present in bioactive natural products.

Also from Dr. Sanchez’s lab, Andrew Passow (B.S. Chemistry, ’23), Savannah Scoons (B.A. Life Sciences, ’24), and Gabriel Steiner (B.S. Biochemistry, ’24), each presented a poster describing their progress in their individual methodology and total synthesis projects.
