Chemistry and Biochemistry News

The chemistry department was thrilled to have a visit from alumni visiting during their spring break from pharmacy school. Alec Romanowski and Katie Abbott are both 2016 chemistry graduates, in their first year of the University at Buffalo Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences program, and on track to earn the PharmD degree. The entire department was on hand to say hello and welcome them back to Stevenson. We wish them continued success and hope to see them again soon! (Pictured L-R: Dr. jeremy Burkett, Dr. Michelle Ivey, Dr. Tim Dwyer, Dr. Dawn Ward, Dr. Will Harrell, Dr. Ellen Roskes, Alec, Katie, Dr. Tracey Mason, Dr. Sara Naryan, Ms. Kaitlin Bailey.)

Junior biology major Anna Chippi (left) and senior biochemistry major Julie Davenport have been conducting research on human cancer cell lines this semester with chemistry faculty member Dr. Tracey Mason. They are looking at the influence on cell death by platinum-containing drugs with an alternative geometry to the current clinical chemotherapy agent Cisplatin. If drugs with a different mechanism of action are discovered, this can help cancer patients with tumors that have developed resistance to Cisplatin during treatment.

Junior chemistry major Krystine Hill and junior biochemistry major Sehlah Butt gave a Stevenson TEDx  talk on February 25. They each focused on challenges they have faced in their life due to gender, ethnicity or choice of major. Both talks can be viewed here on Facebook. Inspiring messages!

Prospective (and some accepted!) biochemistry and chemistry majors visited campus on Saturday March 4th. Students and their families were hosted by Dr. Tracey Mason and biochemistry junior Delaney Patterson during the academic information session and were led on a tour of the Manning Academic Center afterwards by senior chemistry major Janaya Slaughter (pictured). It was great to see so many new faces at Stevenson this weekend, and we hope to see you all back this summer for Mustang Days! 

Biochemistry juniors Aeninll Smith and Tyler John are working with Dr. Dawn Ward this semester doing independent research. They are working on an organic extraction of a compound they have been synthesizing: m-benzyloxyacetophenone, which will eventually be tested for its metal-chelating ability.
