RESEARCH ACHIEVEMENTS


Two teams of un- dergraduate Quin- lan students bested teams from around the world at the 2017 Teradata Part- ners Conference, earning a People’s Choice Award for Best Presentation and a Most Practi- cal/Business Value award.


Sherita Moses, PhD, a lecturer in Physics, received official patent paperwork for a compound she invented that could potentially save the lives of hundreds of thousands of women who suffer from triple-negative breast can- cer—a dangerously aggressive form of cancer.


Her compound is especially re- markable because it holds both analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties which can drastical- ly reduce the pain caused by cancer—traits lacking in most breast cancer drugs. “I wanted to help save lives without all of the pain and suffering patients go through,” she said.


Quinlan students Hussam Bachour, Lu Chang, Nonyelu Chukwuogo, Susan Dittmar, Jie Wie Lo, Sam Mulroe, andHongzhe Zhan took home first place in the Inter- national Student Team Competition at the 2017 APICS conference in San Antonio, Texas.


Jill Geisler, Bill Plante Chair in Leadership and Media Integrity at the School of Com- munication, was chosen to lead the conversation at the Newseum’s “Power Shiſt Summit,” a gathering of invited leaders across jour- nalism and media.


Computer science student John O'Sul- livan is part of a three-person team that won first place


in the international Unchain the Frame hackathon spon- sored by IBM.


Quinlan faculty member Arup Var- ma, PhD, professor of management, will spend five months in India on a Fulbright Scholar- ship beginning in January.
