MMDD2019

Freshman chemistry and biochemistry majors served during Mustangs Make a Difference Day as part of their first year seminar course. The students spread awareness and signed up prospective donors to the national bone marrow registry of Be the Match. This is the third year in a row that the students have helped with this organization, which is especially in need of young ethnically diverse donors, for whom matches are harder to find. If you are interested in learning more about their cause, or considering adding yourself to the registry, visit BetheMatch.org.

Students and faculty traveled to Orlando Florida for the Spring 2019 National Meeting and Expo of the American Chemical Society.  There, senior biochemistry major Kendall Quirk presented her work on the molecular modeling of potential anti HIV drugs that she completed with chemistry faculty member Dr. Sara Narayan. 

Sehlah Steminar April 2019

Senior biochem major Sehlah Butt spent her senior capstone last summer working in a Pakistani hospital. In an SOS STEMinar last week, she shared her experiences with faculty and fellow students and presented the direction she envisions for the future of Pakistani healthcare.

Biochemistry junior Olivia Apicella is spending 10 weeks of her summer vacation in the laboratory. This is Olivia's second independent research experience with Chemistry faculty member Dr. Will Harrell. She, along with chemistry majors Joe Kittelberger and Sarah Riggin are synthesizing tripheynyl methane derivatives that can serve as anion binder and transporter molecules. These transporters, if effective, can help with the fundamental buildup of chloride in the lung cells of patients with cystic fibrosis. Olivia has chosen to continue her work with Dr. Harrell because she had a lot of fun in her first independent research experience. The summer research experience is more in depth than what can happen during the semester, and students have opportunities to not only learn new lab skills, but to practice their oral presentation skills through weekly journal club meetings with other summer research students in the School of the Sciences.

The Stevenson Summer Scholars Research Program (S3RP ) is well underway in the Fine School of the Sciences. Dr. Tim Dwyer and Dr. Will Harrell are conducting research with multiple students this summer. Dr. Dwyer pictured above with his students, biochemistry majors Kristen Snitchler and Dyana Daniyarova  are working on the expression and purification of malate dehydrogenase protein in order to study its role in cancer growth and proliferation.
