Poster session a winner for Chemistry

Chemistry doctoral student Deepti Varma was one of five Temple students whose posters were judged winners during poster sessions held January 22 in Mitten Hall. Co-sponsored by the Chemistry Department and the Philadelphia Section of the American Chemical Society, the event featured some 65 posters by undergraduate and graduate students from 13 area colleges and universities and two high schools. The projects were judged by representatives from local universities and industries, including St. Joseph’s, Villanova, Rohm and Haas and DuPont. Deepti, a member of Chemistry Professor Susan Jansen Varnum’s research group, presented her research, “Development of a High-performance Liquid Chromatography Method for the Simultaneous Determination of Human Sex Hormones.”
