Senior Biology majors Coleman Spence and Tracy Tauro were inducted into the Chi Omega Lambda (ΧΩΛ) Honor Society on May 3, 2018. The American Society of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (ASBMB) Honor Society (ΧΩΛ) recognizes exceptional undergraduate juniors and seniors pursuing degrees in the molecular life sciences at colleges or universities with ASBMB Student Chapters, undergraduate science clubs that focus on scholarship, research and science outreach. The MMC Student Chapter, an amalgam of the Science Society and Pre-Med Student Clubs, has been active since 2004. To date, ten MMC Biology students have been inducted into this highly competitive Honor Society.
Students are selected based on their scholarly achievement, research accomplishments, and outreach activities. Chi Omega Lambda inductees must have a 3.5 GPA and demonstrate exceptional achievement in academics, undergraduate research, and broader science outreach. Both Coleman and Tracy presented their research at the national Experimental Biology Conference in San Diego last month.
The induction was hosted at the home of President Kerry Walk with more than a dozen Biology majors in attendance. Thank you, President Walk, for hosting this event!
