All seniors need to register for the High School Poster Session at St. Joseph’s College. You can do this before Winter Break (December 22 or 23, 2014) or on the first day after Winter break (January 5, 2015). I need to witness your registration for grading purposes. I am available periods 6–9 in the Research Room. Registration is easy. The hardest part is probably entering your project title (or maybe remembering your mentor’s email address). We will make posters during Regents week. The event is scheduled for Saturday, February 7, 2015.
The annual poster session provides an opportunity for talented high school students from the metropolitan area to compete and be recognized for their research accomplishments. This event is sponsored by The New York Section of the American Chemical Society and St. Joseph’s College. The program includes:
- Judging of posters by scientists working in industry and academia
- Guest speaker Carlo Yuvienco, Ph.D., Department of Physical Sciences, St. Joseph’s College
- Certificates to all participants
- Prizes to the four winning presenters

Dr. Carlo Yuvienco holds Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering from New York University and a B.E. in Chemical Engineering from the Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art. His research focus is currently the application of engineered protein constructs for drug delivery applications.
- Title: Protein-based Drug Delivery Agents
- Abstract: With the advancement of technologies to probe and manipulate biophysical matter, the scientific community continues to ever better engineer biological systems with the complexity and elegance in design that is necessary to address biomedical challenges. The growing maturity of the field of protein engineering is a testament to this proclamation.
