Rochester ACS Collegiate Research Conference 2019

This post is a little delayed, but a few weeks ago Amanda, Kaleigh, and Jayesh presented their research results at the Rochester ACS Collegiate Research Conference at the Rochester Institute of Technology.

The SUNY Geneseo Chemistry Department was well represented at the conference, with student presenters from three research groups. We were joined by Dr. Yokoyama as well as students from Dr. Yokoyama’s lab and Dr. Johnson’s lab.

We are truly grateful to the Rochester Section of the American Chemical Society for sponsoring this opportunity for college students from Rochester and the surrounding area to meet and discuss their original research. Many thanks as well to the faculty, staff, and students of this year’s host, RIT, for welcoming us to their campus and for their tremendous work to organize the conference!

SUNY Undergraduate Research Conference 2019

The group presented their research in a poster session at the statewide SUNY Undergraduate Research Conference (SURC), which was held this year at Niagara County Community College.

SURC is an interdisciplinary event including student researchers from a wide variety of fields including the natural sciences, social sciences, and the humanities. SUNY Geneseo was well represented at the event.

We are grateful to the faculty, staff, and students of Niagara County Community College for hosting this conference and providing an opportunity for so many young researchers to discuss their work. We also thank the Geneseo Foundation and its donors for financial support to attend the conference!

GREAT Day 2019

The group presented posters at GREAT Day 2019!

GREAT Day is a campus-wide event where students showcase their accomplishments in research and other scholarly pursuits through presentations, poster sessions, exhibits, and performances. GREAT stands for “Geneseo Recognizing Excellence, Achievement & Talent.”

Congrats to all who participated! And many thanks to all the faculty and staff members who worked to organize this opportunity and make it a success!
