Merck/AAAS Undergraduate Science Research Program
On October 19, our Merck/AAAS Undergraduate Science Research Program Students presented their work in the atrium outside the CSB Auditorium. Afterwards, the Merck/AAAS keynote speaker Professor Ann McDermott from Columbia spoke on: "The Secret Lives of Molecules: Probing the Motions of Enzymes." Student researchers, faculty mentors, interested students, faculty, the Dean of the School Science and Engineering (Dan Jelski) and the Provost (Don Christian) were in attendance.
