Nyack Bio Students Present at SEA PHAGES Conference

Posted by Deborah.Walker on Monday April 17, 2017


Nyack College Biology Department Chair, Dr. Jacqueline Washington, recently shared that five biology majors along with faculty members attended the 2017 NYC Regional SEA-PHAGES Conference held at SUNY Rockland Community College in Suffern, NY where Dr. Paul Turner of Yale University was the keynote speaker. 

A Nyack College abstract was selected for an oral presentation, which was given by Kuan Chiu and Emily Barner. Dr. Washington proudly shares, “Emily was not originally going to present, but the morning of the conference, after I found out that the original speaker would not be attending, Emily agreed to give the talk with Kuan.” Remarkably, this last minute change did not give her much time to prepare. Kuan and Emily were awarded third place in the poster competition.

Congratulations to all on this latest accomplishment!
