Recent grad receives award for poster at chemistry conference
Recent Bloomsburg University graduate Reagan Griffith '22 received an undergraduate student poster award from the American Chemical Society Division of Colloid and Surface Chemistry at the Mid-Atlantic Regional Meeting (MARM) in early June.
Griffith was honored for her poster presentation: "Effect of Rebaudioside A on the ability of a-Amylase to Hydrolyze Starch." The research she was conducting with BU faculty member Toni Bell dealt with understanding how sweeteners, like zero-calorie sweeteners, sucralose and Stevie, interact with enzymes in our digestive processes.
Griffith graduated in May with a Bachelor of Science degree in chemistry-biochemistry and a pre-medical sciences studies certificate and is in the application process for dental school.
