Chemistry senior Heather Drake is conducting research this semester with Dr. Tim Dwyer. Heather is studying the kinetics of two malate dehydrogenase enzymes, MDH1 and MDH2. She is testing to see if inhibitors that play a role in cancer chemotherapy inhibit one or both enzymes. Heather is enjoying her research experience this semester. She has participated in many internships and research experiences in order to gain experience in a wide variety of settings.
