A trio of St. Cloud State University Chemistry and Biochemistry students attended a national conference in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in early April to present research they conducted and network with scientists from around the country.
Students Ujala Chawla, Wengelawit Molla, and Jharef Tecsihua Tamariz represented St. Cloud State at the 2022 American Society of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (ASBMB) conference on April 2-5. The students joined thousands of scientists from multiple disciplines to present their latest findings, participate in lectures and workshops, and network with all in attendance.
During the student poster competition, Molla presented research that was compiled along with St. Cloud State Assistant Professor of Chemistry, Dr. Nathan Bruender. Poster competition included students presenting research to peers and judges before being judged by a panel of undergraduate faculty members, principal investigators, postdoctoral fellows, and industry and government professionals.
The trio of students are all part of St. Cloud State’s Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Club, a student chapter of ASBMB and a group of students who share educational experiences and explore on- and off-campus opportunities.
