Student Research ColloquiumPosted Apr. 2, 2013
The public is invited to attend a Student Research Colloquium at Kent State University at Tuscarawas in New Philadelphia on April 15, at 7 p.m. in room 126 of the Science and Advanced Technology Center. There is no charge for admission and no advance reservations are necessary.
The colloquium is part of a student research program that is in its 15th year. During Fall Semester 2012, all students were given the opportunity to submit a research proposal to the Student Affairs Committee which reviewed and funded the proposals. Dr. Jean Engohang-Ndong, assistant professor of biological sciences, chairs the committee. Other committee members include: Assistant Professor Bill Auld, John Baker, Dr. Lisa Beltz, Dr. Alice Crume, Dr. Kathy Davis Patterson, Dr. Bao Qi Feng, Dr. Adrian Jones, Jonathan VanFossen and Dr. Zhiqiang Wang.
This year, five research projects were selected; the results of which will be presented at the colloquium. The students and their projects are: mechanical engineering technology majors Kenneth Tignor and Jeremy Nape, "Investigation of Manufacturing Processes for Intermediate to Mass Production of Polymer/Graphite-Based Bipolar Plates for Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cells;" pre-nursing major Jessica May, "Determining the Minimum Inhibitory Concentration of Thermally Stressed Pseudomonas Fluorescens;" biology major Jean Wilson Mutambuze, "Antimicrobial Activity of PNU-100480 and BTZ043 Against Mycobacterium Ulcerans;" pre-nursing major Marlin Miller, "Conscientious Objectors: Anabaptists in World War II;" and post-secondary enrollment option student Anthony Wasielewski, "The Effects of Different Polyphenols on the Production of Nitric Oxide from Nitric Oxide Synthase Enzyme;"
Faculty mentors for this year's Colloquium are Dr. Jean Engohang-Ndong, assistant professor of biology; Dr. Vladimir Gurau, assistant professor of engineering technology; Dr. Donald Gerbig, associate professor of biology; Dr. Hongshan Li, professor of history; and Dr. Zhiqiang Wang, assistant professor of chemistry.
