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.

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.

Biochemistry senior, Mike Skaro, is completing his Capstone research with Dr. Christopher Plowe at the University of Maryland School of Medicine studying malaria drug resistance. The ultimate goal of the research is to develop vaccines to prevent this deadly disease. Mike reports that he has learned an incredible amount this summer and loves his research project. He plans to use the research skills he has learned this summer when he attends graduate school next year.

Chemistry senior Mercedes Vilasoa is participating in her Capstone Internship this summer at Johns Hopkins Hospital Pharmacy. She is working with Dr. Alice Hsu investigating enterobacteriaceae, a bacteria that is resistant to antibiotics, and studying how patients with this bacteria should be treated. It's an amazing opportunity and Mercedes is very excited to talk about all that she's learning. This experience is especially important to Mercedes since she's planning a career in pharmacy.

Chemistry senior, Stephen Dennis, is participating in a Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) at Virginia Commenwealth University (VCU) this summer. Stephen is working in the “Practices and Perspectives” program which is designed to provide an experience that combines practical training in specific research techniques (practices) with activities designed to put the research into the context of larger goals of modern science and technology (perspectives). Stephen was excited to be chosen for this program and is having a great summer!
