Undergraduate chemistry major selected to speak at National Conference for Undergraduate Research

Kasey Darley, a senior chemistry major from Macon and member of Dr. Dhar's NanoTherapeutics Research lab, has been selected to present her work at the National Conference for Undergraduate Research in La Crosse, Wisconsin. The presentation, titled 'A Therapeutic Nanoparticle Platform for Ischemic Brain Injury', was selected from more than 3,500 submissions and is one of eight University of Georgia students selected to attend and present at the conference. Darley's presentation was selected because her work demonstrated a unique contribution to her field of study.

The conference is hosted by the National Conference of Undergraduate Research (NCUR). The mission of NCUR is to promote undergraduate research scholarship and creative activity done in partnership with faculty or other mentors as a vital component of higher education.

Darley will graduate with an ACS certified degree in chemistry and will begin work in the Department of Chemistry's graduate program in the fall.
