Jalen Dickson, Topeka, “Mechanisms of Solvent Free Reactions.”

Mollyanne Gibson, Topeka, “Development of Quantitative PCR Techniques to Assess Expression of Metal Uptake and Ribosome Biogenesis Genes in Bacillus Subtilis”

Carole Jontra, Rossville, “Comparative Statistical Analysis of Differentially Expressed Proteins from three Species of Ragweed using Two-Dimensional Electrophoresis and ImageMaster 7 Software.”

Rachel Schomacker, Cheney, “1-D LCMS Analysis of the Proteins of Ambrosia Artemisiiofolia, Ambrosia Psilostachya, and Ambrosia Trifida.”

Maggie Schuetz, Holton, “Progress toward the Synthesis of Dipyrromethanes with β-Azo Linkage to other π-Conjugated Systems.”

Aaron Stadler, Topeka, “Detosylation and Hydrogenation of Cyclic Tosylamines to form Azamacrocycles.”
