Minot State University student, Jordan Torgunrud, presents at CUR Posters on the Hill
Dr. Mikhail Bobylev accompanied Jordan Torgunrud, INBRE student researcher, to the annual Posters on the Hill event sponsored by the Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR) and the American Chemical Society (ACS). Jordan was one of 60 students who presented their research to members of Congress, April 17-18, 2018. Her project in the Chemistry Division was titled, “Scalable Synthesis of Novel Cancer-Preventing Agents”.
Jordan Torgunrud and Dr. Bobylev met with Dr. W. Fred Taylor, acting director of the Division for Research Capacity Building, and Dr. Jon R. Lorsch, the NIGMS Director. They also met with Dr. Krishan Arora, the INBRE Program Director.
Previous presenters at Posters on the Hill from the Bobylev lab include: Jin Hee Choi (2016), Kaylee Dockter (2015), Kowan O’Keefe (2014), Braden Burckhard (2013), Zane Young (2010) and Steven Lewis (2009).
“CUR, in collaboration with ACS, hosts the annual Posters on the Hill event to showcase the work of undergraduate researchers from across the country. The event is highly selective—institutions’ most talented researchers are judged by a national panel of experts in their fields, and only the best teams are chosen for the poster session on Capitol Hill. These undergraduates share their research with Members of Congress, congressional staff, federal government officials, academics, and others, demonstrating the value of federal investment in undergraduate research.” CUR website
