Students participating in faculty-mentored independent research projects not only have the opportunity to present their work to the Department and at college symposia such as the Colby Liberal Arts Symposium and the Colby Undergraduate Summer Research Retreat, but also at national and international professional conferences.  These include those of the American Chemical Society and the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology.
