The 53nd Annual ACS-DFW Meeting-in-Miniature was hosted virtually on Saturday, May 1, 2021 by The University of Texas at Dallas. The meeting was organized using the Blackboard Collaborate platform.
The Meeting in Miniature (MiM) is an annual symposium sponsored by the ACS DFW Local Section. The MiM is held at a local section university on a Saturday in spring. Undergraduate and graduate students throughout the local section are invited to present on their research for a chance to win prizes.
A total of 108 undergraduate and graduate students, and postdoctoral fellows submitted abstracts and gave presentations. The meeting had seven sections: Organic, Polymer, Inorganic, Materials, Biochemistry/Biological Chemistry, Physical/Computational, and Undergraduate.
The Meeting-in-Miniature is an annual conference, sponsored by the ACS-DFW Local Section, where graduate and undergraduate students from across the section are able to present their research in a smaller venue than a national or regional conference.
This year, the UNT Chemistry department was pleased to announce that six of their graduate students won awards.
Melissa Collini (Atkinson)--1st Place in the Organic Section
Kurt Bodenstedt (Omary)--Special Prize in the Inorganic Section
Jacob Fripp (Omary)--1st Place in the Materials Section
Jennifer England (Golden)--3rd Place in the Materials Section
Lama Abu-Amara (Yan)--1st Place in the Physical/Computational Section
Madison Berger (Cisneros)--3rd Place in the Physical/Computational Section
The department won three out of six 1st place spots for graduate students! For more information about the UNT Chemistry Department and the programs they offer, visit: https://chemistry.unt.edu
