Meredith students Meredith Hyatt and Zeenat Razvi presented posters at the 125th N.C. American Chemical Society Sectional Conference, held September 30, 2011. Both students won monetary prizes in a competitive field of undergraduate researchers from all of the colleges and universities in North Carolina’s Triangle and Triad.
Both students completed the work presented on the respective posters by participating in REU summer research programs in 2011. Hyatt's poster described her work at Appalachian State University and Razvi's poster described her work at Duke University.
Hyatt won an undergraduate poster honorable mention for "Metal Coordination Polymer Networks; A Modular Approach." Hyatt worked on this project with Miriam L. Pippin, Appalachian State University, and Alexander D. Schwab, Appalachian State University.
Razvi earned an undergraduate poster honorable mention for "Hydrophilic and Hydrophobic Copper Chelators: Pro-oxidants or Anti-oxidants." She worked on this project with Drew S. Folk, Duke University; Katherine J. Franz, Duke University.
Assistant Professor of Chemistry Claire Parker Siburt attended the conference with Hyatt, Razvi and two other Meredith students. Siburt was the co-author of a poster presented by an undergraduate student. Siburt worked with at Duke University during her post-doctoral training. Reichart also earned a prize for this presentation, "Iron Transport in B. pertussis."
