Chemistry alum Erika Harden was featured in an SU online blog post about her career as a Crime Scene Technician with Baltimore City Police. Erika completed her chemistry degree in 2014 and her master's in forensic science in 2015 by participating in the 4+1 program. Undergraduates take six courses while a fourth year student, at undergraduate tuition rates. They then have only one year of full time work left to complete the masters. The full story of Erika's career can be read here.

We were happy to see alum Andrew McGregor on accepted students day in March. He came to share his experiences with prospective students and families. He also shared with us that he had just been published!  The article, which appears on page one of the inaugural issue of Forensic Science International: Synergy is titled "Immunoassay detection of fly artifacts produced by several species of necrophagous flies following feeding on human blood". This is the second publication for Andrew from the laboratory of David Rivers at Loyola. Great work Andrew and congratulations! 


Recent graduate, Ian Liyayi (Biochem '18) presented his work with Dr. Tracey Mason in the spring 2018 semester at the Annual Biomedical Research Conference for Minority Students in Indianapolis earlier this month.  Ian is currently enrolled in  a yearlong research intensive, NIH funded post baccalaureate training program at the University of Georgia. He is also actively applying to Ph.D. programs and for an NIH graduate research fellowship, which he can use during graduate research.
