Saint Francis held its annual Research Day on November 29, allowing the University community to become more familiar with all the exciting projects students have been researching.

All presentations were evaluated by a panel of judges, composed of deans, faculty, staff, and students from across the campus. Each presentation was scored for content, clarity, relevance, and appearance by multiple judges.

This year the award winners include, Thomas McWilliams (Heat shock proteins as possible stress biomarkers in acid mine drainage remediation), Rebecca Peer (Passive co-treatment of Zn-rich acid mine drainage and raw municipal wastewater), Stephanie Ciraula (Synthesis of chiral cation selective crown ethers), and Christopher Albright (GC-MS analysis of derivatized GABA samples).

Each winner received a $50 travel award in order to help defray costs associated with attending a local or national meeting in the student's discipline.
