Our students won awards from the American Vaccum Society of Western PA, Duane Keenan Award in Biochemistry, Duquesne University for Excellence in Biochemistry, Sister M. Gabrielle Maze, Duquesne University Program in Forensic Science & Law, Innovation Works Award, Director’s Award (Engineering), Duquesne University Department of Biological Sciences, Director’s Award (Biochemistry). Five of our SciTech seniors received Perseverance Awards for their multiple years of participation. Congratulations to these young scientists!
