Release date: July 21, 2010
A group of 18 Goucher science students and seven faculty members will travel to Juniata College on Wednesday, July 21, to participate in the second annual Landmark Conference Summer Science Research Symposium. This scientific symposium was organized by the schools that make up the Landmark Athletic Conference and was held for the first time last year at Susquehanna College.
The following students will make poster presentations at the symposium:
Elianna Apothaker and Samantha Siwulec will present "Tangram Puzzles: Exploring a Mechanism for Subjective Time Perception" with Katherine Choe, Department of Psychology.
Jeffrey Bessen and Abigail Bickford will present "The Mechanism of Formation of Hemozoin, the Malaria Pigment: Kinetic Studies as a Function of pH and Temperature" with Esther J. Gibbs, Department of Chemistry.
Amory Brandt will present "tfiia-s-2 encodes a male germline-specific homolog of the General Transcription factor TFIIA gamma subunit in Drosophila melanogaster" with Mark Hiller, Department of Biology.
Michael Garman and Yan Zhuang will present "Superconducting Properties of MgB2 in High Magnetic Fields and Low Temperatures" with Sasha Dukan, Department of Physics.
Amanda Lee and Noah Robinson will present "The role of downstream DNA structure and sequence in transcriptional pausing by E. coli RNA polymerase" with Judith R. Levin, departments of Biological Sciences and Chemistry.
Kirkbride Loya and Eli Woodoff-Leith will present "Charge transfer in photochromic dithienylcyclopentene nano-switches" with Kevin P. Schultz, Department of Chemistry. They also will present "Synthesis and optical properties of photochromic organoboron-based dithienylcyclopentene derivatives" with Kevin P. Schultz, Department of Chemistry.
Hillary Merrill and Elizabeth Von Ende will present "Efforts Toward the Construction of Spirocyclic Amines" with Ruquia Ahmed-Schofield, Department of Chemistry.
Kelsey Osha and Jennifer Roche will present "I Knew This Was Going To Be Hard!: Hindsight Bias in a Change Detection Paradigm" with Jennifer McCabe, Department of Psychology.
Jonathan Susser will present "From the Lab to the Dorm Room: Metacognitive Awareness and Use of the of the Spacing Effect" with Jennifer McCabe, Department of Psychology.
These students will present talks during the symposium:
David Hall will present "39K Trapping for the Production of Ultracold KCs" with Marin Pichler, Department of Physics.
Kelley Moran will present "Modeling Gastric Emptying" with Gretchen Koch, the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science.
