Prof. Julie Lukesh

Julie LukeshProf. Julie Lukesh has been exploring the Development of Chemical Sensors for Measuring Antioxidant levels in Food, with Professor Yolanda Jones of Alcorn State University and funded by the USDA. The need for developing a method to test for flavonoid content of sweet potatoes is important since sweet potatoes with high antioxidant content are considered value added crops. To analyze for flavonoid content, a chemical sensor is needed. A chemically sensitive coating will be prepared via molecular imprinting technologies. The syntheses of the coatings (i.e.; polymers) will be carried out using a combinatorial approach at the UW-Green Bay with the help of undergraduate students. Not will this research benefit farmers growing sweet potatoes, but also for the fulfilling the mission statement of the University of Wisconsin Green Bay – connecting learning to life. Students involved in this project will learn basic chemistry research skills and will be more prepared to enter the work force or graduate school.

Posters in the Rotunda 2012

A Celebration of Undergraduate Student Research

Wednesday March 7, 2012, Capitol Rotunda, Madison Wisconsin

 General Information

‘Posters in the Rotunda’ – intended to highlight the extent, quality, and value of undergraduate involvement in faculty-guided research projects. Students and faculty from all UW schools will have the opportunity to display their work for Wisconsin legislators in the Capitol Rotunda, highlighting the importance of undergraduate research and education support at the state and national levels.

For further PITR information and to view past events visit www.wisconsin.edu/posters/index.htm.

Application Information

Application deadline: 9:00 a.m. February 7, 2012.  Submit your completed application, via e-mail, to Lidia Nonn at nonnl@uwgb.edu. Selected applicants will be contacted by the PITR Coordinator. In addition, selected applicants will need to submit a completed poster by February 28, 2012.  Please Click Here for Posters in the Rotunda Application Form.   

A faculty mentor is required: Each presentation should be sponsored or co-sponsored by a UWGB faculty mentor(s); non-sponsored abstracts will not be accepted.

Presentation Information

Poster specifics: If chosen to present, the PITR Coordinator will be in contact with you.  Presenters will need to construct a self-supporting poster to be placed on an easel for viewing. Students will receive one-on-one assistance in creating their poster or adapting it for the session in Madison. Presenters will receive assistance with poster printing costs and easels will be provided.

Eligible work: An eligible presentation will report, perform, or represent the outcome of substantial work by a student or group of students. While the project may have its origin in an assignment for a class, the presentation should show it has been developed above and beyond a class requirement. It is a paper, artifact, or performance that can truly be called a creative achievement.

Abstract requirement: Each poster presentation requires an abstract. An abstract is a summary of the project and should reflect the professional format normally associated with scholarly work in its discipline (e.g., an abstract of an artistic performance may be similar to the program notes that typically accompany such a performance; science abstracts typically include background information, methods, results, and a brief discussion).

Abstract preparation: Student authors should adhere to professional submission standards when preparing abstracts and should work with their faculty mentors to ensure that their abstract is correct, complete, and that all guidelines are followed. The body of the abstract should not exceed 50 words, and can be composed and edited using standard word processing software. The final abstract, along with other information, will need to be submitted electronically via the application form.

Faculty mentor is required: Each presentation should be sponsored or co-sponsored by a UWGB faculty mentor(s); non-sponsored abstracts will not be accepted.

Interdisciplinary presentations: Interdisciplinary presentations are especially encouraged!

Travel to Madison: Travel to Madison will be provided.
