Biochemistry junior, Yaakov Itzkowitz was chosen for the Toby Eagle Scholarship at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine.  Here's his description of this exceptional opportunity:

"The Toby Eagle Scholarship for Cancer Research has provided me with the opportunity to participate in and observe research taking place in the Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. The department is renowned for its part in groundbreaking cancer research and my time here has allowed me to observe and participate in the medical community’s “front line of defense” against cancer.  In the weeks I have spent in the lab I have learned a great deal-- specifically about the epigenetic factors that contribute to cancer growth.  I am very excited about the work being done here and have been privileged to meet professionals who are not only outstanding scientists but remarkable human beings.

My work this summer has strengthened my resolve not only to attend medical school, but to participate in research that can save and improve the lives of those suffering from cancer and other debilitating or life threatening illnesses. This internship has taught me a great deal about medicine as well as molecular biology, both of which will undoubtedly serve me well in my career path."

Biochemistry senior Ciara Faupel is spending the summer at the Nathan Schnaper Summer Intern Program (NSIP) in Cancer Research at the University of Maryland School of Medicine. She is testing the ability of novel small molecules to inhibit the growth of cancer cells. She loves this experience and is planning to use all the information, skills and experience she has gained towards her career goal as a biochemistry researcher.

Three biochemistry majors are part of a group of faculty and students who represented Stevenson at the National Conference on Undergraduate Research at UNC-Asheville. Our students will be among the 4,000 from across the country presenting their research.

Junior Alexis Spertzel is excited about her first independent research experience.  She is working with organic chemistry faculty member, Dr. Will Harrell, synthesizing small molecules that will serve as inhibitors of botulinum neurotoxin. Although the semester has just started, Lexie is having fun and has learned a lot. She likes working one-on-one with a faculty member and learning new techniques and reactions. She looks forward to learning more throughout the semester!

Heather Drake (right), a chemistry senior, completed her capstone internship this summer at Taylor Technologies.  She was excited to intern there because she worked with SU 2010 Chemistry alumni Becki Shook, Janine Ladzinski (left, in picture) and Alyssa Pawlowicz!...Click here to read more.
