Oberlin chemistry and biochemistry students and faculty traveled to the American Chemical Society’s National Meeting in Indianapolis in late March to present posters on their research and learn about cutting-edge science.

Seven students took part in the conference, along with professors Will Parsons and Lisa Ryno.

“We are proud to be Oberlin chemists!” says Ryno (pictured far right; Parsons far left).

Following are the students who participated and the subjects of their research:

Cassie Davies ’24: Competitive activity-based protein profiling of RHBDL2 and RHBDL4 for inhibitor discovery

Anna Francis ’23: Transcriptomic analysis of rhamnose treatment on E. coli planktonic and biofilm cells

Jenna Frizzell ’23: Influence of RpoH and RpoF overexpression on quinolone, macrolide, and glycopeptide antibiotic tolerance and biofilm growth in E. coli

Ellie Ko ’25: Influence of overexpression of the phosphodiesterase YhjH on E. coli biofilm formation and composition

Allison Lupatkin ’24: Development of whole-cell sensors for low concentration antibiotic detection

Kyogo Nagashima ’24: Exploring the influence of environmental lactose on Biofilm formation and composition in E. coli

Ryan Taylor ’23: Changes in tolerance of amphenicol and tetracycline antibiotics with stress-responsive transcription factor overexpression in E. coli
