USD Student Wins Chemical Society Poster Session
Austin Fritza, of South Sioux City, Nebraska, won the contest with his research exploring how dental products could be used to treat tooth hypersensitivity. “Currently, we are applying various chemical treatments to extracted tooth samples and monitoring tooth surface using Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM),” he said. “The main goal of our research is to prevent sensitivity in teeth.” Fritza has also presented his work at the Undergraduate Research Symposium in Pierre, South Dakota, and the Summer Research Symposium held at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
John Fanta, of Yankton, South Dakota, placed third with his research about excitement and clarity. “My research is an interdisciplinary study between chemistry and basic biomedical sciences at USD and the Sanford School of Medicine,” he said. Fanta has had previous experience presenting research at local conferences including the Society for Neuroscience in Chicago, Illinois.
