Illinois Tech Students Excel at the Chicago Area Undergraduate Research Symposium

Each year, the Chicago Area Undergraduate Research Symposium (CAURS) brings together nearly 130 undergraduate students in the fields of biology, chemistry, physics, engineering, mathematics, computer science, psychology, sociology, and humanities to participate in poster and oral presentations. This year, CAURS was held at the Museum of Science and Industry on April 9. Illinois Tech students excelled at the annual event, winning two awards:

Top Presenter from Illinois Tech: Wesley Lo, “Estimation of Pro-Angiogenic Peptide Diffusion Coefficient from Crosslinked Hydrogel Nanoparticles”

Honorable Mention in Physical and Geophysical Sciences: Melanie Dooley, “Fabrication of Diffraction Gratings with Fifty Nanometer Feature Size for Use in Antimatter Gravity Study”
