Seven SMCM biology majors presented their research at the Spring Meeting of the Atlantic Estuarine Research Society (AERS) at the Calvert Marine Museum in Solomons over the weekend of April 9. They were among the 30 students from New York to North Carolina who gave either oral or poster presentations. Students who presented were: Maddie Gillis, Elizabeth Lee, Amanda Liebrecht, Chelsea McGlynn, Erika Schmitt, Katie Studholme and Mike Studivan.
Fortunately, interest in biology and chemistry has recently risen dramatically. Unfortunately, the interest in these disciplines has grown much faster than the College’s ability to properly accommodate its students.
“Differential Ablation of Sensory Receptors Underlies Oxytocin-Induced Shifts in Auditory Thresholds of the Goldfish (Carassius auratus).” This is the title of senior Gordon Michael Selckmann’s recent publication in the Journal of Applied Toxicology (JAT).
Senior Jon Ford was awarded the American Society for Microbiology’s (ASM) Undergraduate Research Fellowship for his work on finding bacterial spore predators. This fellowship, according to the ASM website, is awarded to “highly competitive students who wish to pursue graduate careers (Ph.D. or MD/Ph.D) in microbiology.” It is only awarded Read More
