Student Presents Research at Regional ACS Meeting
Tom Finn

 

Aquinas student Tom Finn ('13) presented a poster at the Central Regional
Meeting of the American Chemical Society in Mount Pleasant, Michigan, in
May 2013.

 

Tom, who will begin veterinary school at Purdue University in the fall,
worked with Dr. Elizabeth Jensen during the summer of 2012. Their project
explored colorimetric methods for detecting the insecticide compounds
permethrin and deltamethrin, commonly found on treated bed netting. The
project was funded by a Mohler-Thompson Summer Research grant and involved
collaboration with a research team at Saint Mary's College and the
University of Notre Dame.
