Jackson State University graduate chemisty student Mahabubur Rhaman won the prize in the Graduate Poster Competition at the 8th Annual National Symposium on Prostate Cancer held in Atlanta March 18 -20. Rhaman will receive a certificate and $250 from the symposium.
In this poster, Rhaman discussed his research work on transition metal complexes of macrocycles and their application in anion sensing and DNA cleavage. Such molecules hold the potential for curing certain cancer cells.
Rhaman is currently a Ph.D. student under the supervision of Dr. Md. Alamgir Hossain, an associate professor of chemistry and biochemistry at JSU, and his research is supported by the National Science Foundation’s CAREER program.
