Students have been working on a semester-long project in Dr. Timothy Dwyer's Biochemistry Lab studying a green fluorescent protein. First, they used modern DNA and protein techniques to purify the protein. They then compared a mutant protein to their protein to see if there's a difference in flouresence between the two. This project has been particularly exciting because students have designed their own experiments from the biochemical literature and are writing a scientific paper of their findings.  

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 Senior, Samantha Allen, spent her summer preparing for pharmacy school.  In addition to studying for her PCAT (Pharmacy College Admissions Test), Sam completed an internship at Giant Pharmacy. She had a great experience there and learned so much.

While at the internship, her supervisor allowed her to complete the hands-on experience and learning modules needed to sit for the Pharmacy Technician exam.With her coursework complete and a strong internship experience completed, Sam is well positioned for applying to pharmacy school!

All new freshmen and transfer chemistry and biochemistry majors are invited to participate in our Chemistry Mentoring Program.  New students and their mentors meet in both large and small group settings throughout the first semester.  New students tell us how much they benefit from having a peer mentor to help them through their questions as they acclimate to SU.  

Pictured above is one of the Mentor Program events.  Pizza, games and activities resulted in everyone having a good time!
