The Haynes Research Group focuses on applications of analytical chemistry in the fields of immunologyand toxicology. Major areas of focus include nanotoxicology and the fundamental properties of cells involved in inflammation. The Haynes lab studies pressing fundamental and and applied problems in nanoscience, environmental science, and immunology -- such as the potential biological and ecological impacts of nanoparticles added to consumer products.
What Is Winchell?
The Annual Meeting & Winchell Undergraduate Research Symposium prepares undergraduate students to enter the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics by providing a forum for students to showcase their scientific research, receive comments from professional scientists and peers, and network with professionals in the fields they aspire to enter.
There are four main components of the event: a keynote lecture, oral presentations, breakout sessions and poster presentations. In 2018, the keynote address and oral presentations took place in the morning. Breakout sessions and poster sessions ran in the afternoon.
We strictly adhere to time and space limits (regarding oral and poster presentations, respectively). See: Guidelines for oral and poster presentations
