Chemistry and Biochemistry News

Biochemistry senior, Kennedy Akwo, describes his summer Capstone internship:

"My internship at CVS Pharmacy involves training to become a certified Pharmacy Technician as well as assisting in the pickup, drop-off, and production of prescriptions. I enjoy working in the pharmacy and learning from pharmacists on how to be successful in the position. This internship has reinforced belief in my desire to pursue pharmacy and I couldn’t be happier." 

From Chris Zaykoski, Biochemistry Senior:

I've been working in Pathology at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine here in Baltimore. Our lab's mission is to develop a reliable early detection method to find pancreatic cancer. There are no symptoms of pancreatic cancer until it has progressed to its advanced stage and metastasized to other organs. The five year survival rate is less than five percent at time of diagnosis. Within in the next decade it will become the second leading cause of cancer death in the world. The only way to improve prognosis is to detect it early but there are no current methods to detect tiny pancreatic precursor lesions. ...Click here to read more.

This summer, Zoe Singman is shadowing a Head & Neck Cancer surgeon at the Johns Hopkins Hospital. She observes her in both the clinic and the operating room and she is performing a clinical research project with her as well. 

In Zoe's own words:  "I am really enjoying my experience! I am learning  about basic outpatient and surgical care, and I feel it is most rewarding to observe the unique patient-physician relationship. I am inspired by the surgeon’s gentle, caring manner and her staunch advocacy of the patient in the clinic and the operating room.  This experience ties directly into my career goal as a physician as I am becoming familiarized with the daily schedule and activities of a doctor. I also hope to one day emulate the amazing bedside manner that I have been privileged to see."

For her capstone experience, Biochemistry Senior, Courtney Aceto (right), is working at the Division of Malaria Research at University of Maryland Baltimore under the supervision of Dr. Amed Ouattara. The two research projects that she is working on are "Genotyping New vs Recrudescent Malaria Infections" and "Sequencing of Circumpsporozoite Protein to Distinguish New from Recrudescent Infections."  Courtney thoroughly enjoys the work that she is doing. "My capstone directly ties into my career goals of researching infectious disease as an epidemiologist. I can use this experience for both my academics and practice in the field."

At the end of July, Dr. Michelle Ivey (in red) attended the PKAL Summer Leadership Institute in Adamstown, MD.  At the Institute, she worked with mentors and other attendees to develop exciting ideas on increasing success and fostering an environment that embraces and encourages diversity.  She plans to start incorporating these ideas at Stevenson this year.
