mustang mentors

The office of Career Connections hosted the first "Mustang Mentors" event this semester to connect alumni mentors with current students. We were please to see Andrew McGregor (BS'15/MS'16) come to the mixer to give advice to up and coming forensic science majors. Pictured above, Andrew is speaking with Meghan, who was recently admitted to the BS/MS program. 

Meghann Hefner

Biochemistry (BS'19) alum Meghann Hefner recently accepted a position as a Beverage Application Technician at McCormick Spice Company. During her summer senior capstone internship, Meghann worked as a Quality Assurance Intern at Medifast,  a nutrition and weight loss company based in Baltimore. She completed more than 300 hours at her internship and during the course the subsequent fall semester, wrote a substantive paper about the most current research on the issue of artificial sweeteners and the effects on metabolism. This paper was supported by a professional poster that she presented at the semi-annual School of the Sciences poster session. In addition to her work at Medifast, Meghann performed independent biochemistry research, synthesizing and purifying MDH protein for use in protocols to study its role in cancer chemotherapy. Before this position, Meghann has been employed elsewhere in the flavoring industry, but is excited to transition to McCormick.  She hopes to pursue a Master's in food science while an employee at McCormick. Congratulations Meghann on landing your dream job!

Waterfall Ecuador 2020

Students in Ecuador 2020


Another successful Herbal Medicines and Remedies 2020 Winterim course has finished and the students are headed back to Baltimore. During their time in Ecuador, students learned about the indigenous medicines of the region through various excursions to Botanical Gardens, Ecological Reserves, and indigenous clinics and hospitals. They learned about one of Ecuador's main exports, chocolate, at the Chicao cocoa farm. In all it was a fabulous trip led by chemistry faculty member Dr. Tim Dwyer.
