MOORHEAD, Minn. – Ten Minot State University students along professor Mikhail Bobylev attend the 12th annual Northwest Region Meeting “Undergraduate Research in the Molecular Sciences” event held at Minnesota State University – Moorhead.

The event featured students presenting the results of their research projects in organic chemistry. MSU students recently completed their projects in Bobylev’s lab. As a part of the event, nine students displayed poster presentations, while one made an oral presentation.

MSU student Jordan Torgunrud won the Undergraduate Research in Molecular Sciences Top award for her oral presentation, awarded by the Red River Valley Section of the American Chemical Society (ACS). The award, a $500 travel award, will help support her trip to the 255th National Meeting of the American Chemical Society in New Orleans, La., set for March 18-22, 2018.

Torgunrud’s research project was supported by the North Dakota Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (ND EPSCoR).

MSU students Megan Rodgers and Shin Young Park won one-year memberships in the American Chemical Society for their poster presentations.

Seven of the presented research projects were supported by the North Dakota INBRE and two of the projects were supported by the MSU Division of Science.
