Dr. Santosh Mandal’s research students present at the 250th ACS National Conference in Boston, MA.

On August 16, 2015, two Morgan State University Chemistry students were invited to present their research in Chemical and Biological Sciences at the 250th American Chemical Society National Meeting & Expo in Boston, Massachusetts. Graduate student, Samira Azemati and honors sophomore, Sabreea Parnell presented their inorganic chemistry research with over 8500 conference attendees.

ACS Regional Meetings are organized by ACS Local Sections and reflect the diverse professional interests in their geographic regions. These meetings feature excellent technical programs on a variety of topics, poster sessions, expositions, and social events over the course of a three to four day period. The smaller size of an ACS Regional Meeting allows for a greater opportunity for interactions between attendees, and costs less to attend than a National Meeting. The students that presented were: 

Samira Azemati - "Cytotoxic and DNA-binding properties of organorhenium-coordinated non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs)."

Sabreea Parnell - "Synthesis, characterizations, and properties of organorhenium complexes of flufenamic acid."
