Over Christmas break, James Perreault ’20 is taking his UVCanopy concept one step closer to production. The junior finance major at Saint Mary’s had an opportunity to pitch his idea for a sanitizing system for wheelchairs and other hospital equipment to medical professionals at Mayo Clinic on Dec. 7 as part of the Mayo Walleye Tank competition.
Saint Mary’s science interns spent the summer researching area bat habitats, testing local waters, and removing invasive species. They gained valuable research techniques and learned how their work can contribute to helping issues on local, regional, and even potentially national levels.
With a new ThermoFischer Gas Chromatograph Mass Spectrometer, Saint Mary’s students are now able to separate, identify, and quantify complex mixtures of chemicals at a whole new level.
