Graduate Student Wins Best Poster Award
Chemical and biological engineering graduate student Chris Morrison recently won the W.H. Peterson Best Poster Award. The 33-year-old award is given annually by the American Chemical Society (ACS) Biotechnology Division. The title of Morrison’s poster was “Investigation of Chemically Selective Displacers using Robotic High Throughput Screening, SPR, NMR and MD Simulations.”

Morrison is the third student to win this award from Professor Steven Cramer’s research group in the past 10 years. Previous Rensselaer winners include Kaushal Rege in 2004 for his paper, “Parallel Synthesis and High-Throughput Evaluation of Novel Multivalent Polycations and Cationic Polymers for DNA Binding” and Nihal Tugcu in 2001 for “Anion Exchange displacer discovery using high-throughout screening and quantitative structure efficacy relationship models.” Rensselaer Assistant Professor Peter Tessier also won the W.H. Peterson Award for Best Oral Presentation in 2002.”
