Biochemistry juniors, (l-r), Robert Chen, Michele Collingsworth and Nicole Heil, work as a team in Dr. Timothy Dwyer's Integrative Laboratory in Biochemistry. In this new laboratory experience, students combine skills and concepts learned in other courses in the curriculum and apply them to a biochemistry problem. Each team of students works on a semester long independent project.  On this day, the students were preparing buffers for a chromatography column that they were going to use the next week to purify a protein.

Congratulations to junior Tiffany Kahl on being selected for American International Select Softball Team to represent the United States in the summer of 2015! Tiffany was nominated for this honor by her Stevenson coaches for her playing this past spring.

Tiffany will travel to Italy next summer and looks forward to playing, meeting her teammates who will be from all over the United States, meeting those on the other teams from all around the world and even finding her family roots in Italy! We're really excited for you, Tiffany!

Biochemistry junior Alicia Greene spent the summer at the Nathan Schnaper Summer Intern Program (NSIP) in Cancer Research at the University of Maryland School of Medicine. She worked under the direction of UM faculty member, Dr. Arnob Banerjee, studying T-cells. She had an amazing summer working on her project, "STAT5 Activation and ATM Expression in T-cell Lines" and plans to use all the information, skills and experience she gained as she continues towards her career goal towards becoming a physician.

Janice Laforteza, a biochemistry senior, completed her Capstone internship at The Living Legacy Foundation (LLF) this summer. LLF is a non-profit health service organization that facilitates the donation and recovery of human organs and tissues for transplantation and research.  

Janice was a Quality Systems Intern. In this role, she ensured organizational compliance with various state, federal and industry regulatory agencies, filed documents for individual donor cases, shadowed staff members to learn more about the culture of LLF, and watched how skin processing is done.

In her own words, "Although this position is in an environment surrounded by the death of people, it is mostly filled with everyday real-life stories of heroes that are willing to give the gift of life! It is honestly an experience I am most grateful for and has opened my eyes to new and amazing views."

Biochemistry senior, Joshua Johnson, spent this summer interning at Giant Pharmacy as part of his Capstone course. "I have been doing the job of a pharmacy technician, such as taking prescription drop offs, filling prescriptions, making phone calls to patients etc. Also, I learned how to operate the robot Giant uses to count pills." Joshua has enjoyed this amazing internship opportunity and is excited about a career in pharmacy.
