As a high school student Benjamin Craig's motto was, "Here's my plate, load it on." He brought that mentality with him to Emmanuel, where he has always been ready to take on a new opportunity.
Emmanuel students nearly swept the awards portion of the Eastern New England Biological Conference (ENEBC), held on Saturday, April 21, at Colby Sawyer College in New London, New Hampshire. In all, 22 students from the College's biology department participated in the annual event.
Many of these students were participating as part of the two-semester BIOL 4194/95 course (Research Internship). The ENEBC was established in 1942 to support undergraduate research, and Emmanuel College has been a member since the very beginning.
There were more than 120 attendees at the conference, representing 12 colleges and universities. The conference schedule included 12 oral presentations and 60 poster presentations. Dr. Kelley Thomas (Univ. of New Hampshire) was the keynote speaker, and his research seminar was entitled: "Environmental Genomics: Can Sequencing Open the Biodiversity 'Black Box'?"
Emmanuel student research was very well-received, with 4 out of 5 poster awards going to Emmanuel students (Alexandra Mulligan '18, Tusneem Janoudi '18, James Kaufman '18 and Gianna Iantosca '18). Congratulations to all participants!
