Biochemistry senior, Zoe Singman, presented a seminar on her summer internship at Johns Hopkins Hospital as part of the requirements for her Honors Capstone course.  During her internship, Zoe shadowed physicians in the Head and Neck Cancer Clinic and during surgeries.   She also participated in a clinical research project under the direction of Dr. Christine Gourin.  Zoe's seminar topic was The Impact of Electronic Health Records on Healthcare during which she shared the advantages and disadvantages of electronic records.  Congratulations, Zoe, on an excellent presentation!

Biochemistry senior, Jan Donato, is enjoying working at the new Wegmans' Pharmacy in Owings Mills for his capstone internship!  Jan reports that Wegmans provided him with good training in and he likes that the Pharmacy is customer friendly.  This experience is giving Jan better insight into what a career in pharmacy will entail.

Biochemistry senior, Kennedy Akwo, describes his summer Capstone internship:

"My internship at CVS Pharmacy involves training to become a certified Pharmacy Technician as well as assisting in the pickup, drop-off, and production of prescriptions. I enjoy working in the pharmacy and learning from pharmacists on how to be successful in the position. This internship has reinforced belief in my desire to pursue pharmacy and I couldn’t be happier." 

From Chris Zaykoski, Biochemistry Senior:

I've been working in Pathology at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine here in Baltimore. Our lab's mission is to develop a reliable early detection method to find pancreatic cancer. There are no symptoms of pancreatic cancer until it has progressed to its advanced stage and metastasized to other organs. The five year survival rate is less than five percent at time of diagnosis. Within in the next decade it will become the second leading cause of cancer death in the world. The only way to improve prognosis is to detect it early but there are no current methods to detect tiny pancreatic precursor lesions. ...Click here to read more.

For her capstone experience, Biochemistry Senior, Courtney Aceto (right), is working at the Division of Malaria Research at University of Maryland Baltimore under the supervision of Dr. Amed Ouattara. The two research projects that she is working on are "Genotyping New vs Recrudescent Malaria Infections" and "Sequencing of Circumpsporozoite Protein to Distinguish New from Recrudescent Infections."  Courtney thoroughly enjoys the work that she is doing. "My capstone directly ties into my career goals of researching infectious disease as an epidemiologist. I can use this experience for both my academics and practice in the field."
