Langston University’s LINC scholars Attend The National Institute of Science and Beta Kappa Chi Scientific Honor Society's 70th Joint Annual Meeting: Half of the Participants Win Awards. Washington DC.  March 13-17. 2013. Eight of the eleven LINC STEM scholars who submitted abstracts of their research projects for this competitive event had their work accepted for presentation during the conference. LINC’s Education Coordinator, Brittanie Atkinson, also submitted her work in the Graduate category.  Student researchers (and Ms. Atkinson) defended their research projects, presented as oral or poster presentations,  before faculty judges from across the country.  A total of 202 undergraduate abstracts were accepted into competition.  Four of Langston’s eight student presenters won awards.  Ms. Atkinson also won an award in the Graduate category, bringing Langston’s total to five awards.

Five Langston University STEM students Compete for National Awards in STEM Research and One Wins First Place Langston University’s Langston Integrated Network College for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (LINC for STEM) scholars  attended the February 28th - March 2nd, 2013 Emerging Researchers National (ERN) Conference in Washington, DC. One graduating senior, Kayla Love, brought home a first place award for her presentations. Kayla Love presented methodology she helped develop aimed at detecting perchlorate brines on Mars. The purposed apparatus may be able to give insight into the history and future of Mars’s water content and the possibility of biological life on Mars.

Langston University's Integrated College Network alumnus publishes her graduate analytical chemistry research work


Karole Blythe is a Langston University & LINC alumnus attending graduate school at The University of Texas at Austin (UT Austin). She has recently published some of her graduate research in a professional article titled "Ground state depletion microscopy for imaging interactions between gold nanowires and fluorophore-labeled ligands." Karole was one of the two lead authors of this research article.

 

Karole earned her B.S. degree in Chemistry and her minor in Mathematics  from Langston in 2009, and started attending UT Austin the following semester. She is now pursuing a Ph.D. in Analytical Chemistry at UT Austin, and is a member of Katherine Willets' Willet's Lab research group. Her research focuses on using Surface Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy (SERS) and utilizes high resolution fluorescence microscopy, specifically Stochastic Optical Reconstruction Microscopy (STORM).

 

Karole is a recipient of the UT Austin’s Graduate School Diversity Recruitment Fellowship, the Integrative Graduate Education, and the Research Traineeship NSF Fellowship.
