Chemistry students, Connor Frey and Kenneth Ku, in collaboration with Dr. Golfam Ghafourifar, Chemistry and Dr. David Chu, Math & Stats presented at the 27th International Symposium on Electrophoretic and Liquid Phase Separation Techniques, ITP. The event was to be held in Nanjing, China, however, in light of the Covid-19 situation, the conference was held in a digital format with scientists participating worldwide from their respective locations, over the course of three days, from November 2-4, 2020.

Connor presented his poster, “The Crosslinking of Chymotrypsin with Formaldehyde: Determining Optimal Parameters Using Mass Spectrometry and UV-Vis Spectroscopy with Bradford Assay”.

Kenneth’s poster, “Optimizing Immobilization of Chymotrypsin with Formaldehyde and Subjecting Peptide Maps of Digests to Principal Component Analysis” won 1st place for Best Poster by Popular Vote.

Congratulations to you both and to your faculty supervisors for a job well done!
