Senior Thesis Presentation and Dinner

Our first senior thesis presentation was given by Katie Speidel (Chemistry – BS, ’11) last Thursday night. The faculty provided a great Italian dinner, featuring lasagna by Dr. Kroll, and Katie provided a great lecture on the future use the intercalation of drugs into inorganic nano-particles as a method for drug delivery. This approach may even provide a method for delivering macro-molecular drugs, like insulin, orally rather than via injections.
