Niagara University Junior Chosen For Chemistry Research Fellowship
Christopher Fritschi, a junior chemistry majorat Niagara University, has been selected to receive a summer undergraduate research fellowship from the Organic Chemistry Division of the American Chemical Society.
Only nine students from across the country were chosen.
Fritschi, of West Seneca, will leverage the fellowship to continue his work on the synthesis of caramboxin, an amino acid found in star fruit, for medicinal chemistry applications.
In April, Fritschi’s presentation on the topic earned the award for Best Oral Presentation at the Western New York American Chemical Society’s Undergraduate Research Symposium.
