Students and faculty from the University of North Georgia (UNG) department of chemistry and biochemistry recently traveled to the American Chemical Society National Meeting in San Francisco.

Dr. John Leyba, chemistry and biochemistry department head; Dr. Aimée Tomlinson, associate professor of chemistry; Dr. Greta Giles, assistant professor of chemistry; and Dr. Eric Huddleston, assistant professor of chemistry; accompanied six students to the meeting.  The results of six different research projects were presented by the students.

Corina Lupse, senior and chemistry major, presented her research which involved the analysis of soils from abandoned mines and caves in northeast Georgia.  Corina received an award on her poster which was entitled "Determining Metal Content in Abandoned Mine Soils."

"While allowing the student to grow and develop academically, our program builds on the liberal arts mission of UNG," Leyba said. "Students may also participate in undergraduate research, field trips, chemistry outreach programs, and service opportunities and they are actively encouraged to participate in the various clubs and organizations on campus as all of the campuses provide ample opportunities for students to contribute and connect with the community and profession."
