Three Rhodes students won awards for their research presentations at the Arkansas IDeA Network of Biomedical Research Excellence (INBRE) virtual conference hosted by the University of Arkansas Nov. 6-7. Students from more than 20 colleges and universities participated in the conference.
- Will R. Newman ’21 won first place in the physics section for “Backscatter Difference Analysis of Ultrasonic Signals Measured From Brain Tissue For Possible Transcranial Applications.” (see slide below)
- Daryna (Dasha) Safarian ’21 won first place in the chemistry section for “DFT Study of Ligand Binding In The Beta-1 Adrenergic Receptor.”
- Kameron Klugh ’22 won second place in the chemistry section for “Dopamine Analogs to Investigate Enzymatic Function of L-DOPA Dioxygenase.”
At Rhodes, Newman has worked in the lab of Prof. Brent Hoffmeister; Safarian in the lab of Prof. Mauricio Cafiero; and Klugh in the lab of Prof. Larryn Peterson.
Rhodes students Rachel Ancar ’21 and Dillon Mosman ’21 also presented their work at the Arkansas INBRE conference.
