Madhav Ghanta (right), CEBC doctoral graduate student in Prof. Bala Subramaniam's laboratory, won first place for his research poster at the University of Kansas Graduate Student Research Competition in February.
Ghanta was also selected to present his research poster at the 6th annual Graduate Student Research Summit in Topeka, KS, on March 12. The summit gives outstanding graduate students from the University of Kansas, Kansas State University, and Wichita State University the opportunity to share their research with state legislators and the board of regents. KansasBIO, the state’s trade and advocacy association for the biosciences industry, will present $3,000 in awards to students with exceptional work.

Madhav's research poster was titled, "Greener Oxidation of Propylene and Ethylene Minimizes Environmental Impact and Increases Safety." This research may one day help industry reduce the amount of carbon dioxide released in the chemical process for making these commonly used chemicals.
