Chemistry and Biochemistry News



Several of our freshmen enjoyed playing a variety of sports this fall.  Some of these students include Darian Hileman (volleyball), Demetra Lambros (soccer), Zak Sheikh and Joe Kittelberger (ice hockey), Rachel Grewette (ice hockey), Bre Owens (field hockey).  It's great to see our students involved in and excited about SU's sports!  Go Mustangs!

The Honors section of General Chemistry I, taught by Dr. Jeremy Burkett, gave presentations of their original research proposals last week.  The students worked all semester to identify a potential area of research, collect background information, outline and compose a paper that included proposed experiments, and finally, present their work and field questions from other professors about their proposed ideas.  The oral presentations last week marked the culmination of nearly fifteen weeks of work!

Biochemistry senior, Zoe Singman, presented a seminar on her summer internship at Johns Hopkins Hospital as part of the requirements for her Honors Capstone course.  During her internship, Zoe shadowed physicians in the Head and Neck Cancer Clinic and during surgeries.   She also participated in a clinical research project under the direction of Dr. Christine Gourin.  Zoe's seminar topic was The Impact of Electronic Health Records on Healthcare during which she shared the advantages and disadvantages of electronic records.  Congratulations, Zoe, on an excellent presentation!

Students attended a session given by Mrs. Diane Payne, Assistant Vice President for Research & Academic Operations, to learn about undergraduate summer research opportunities. Her office helps SU students expand their scientific experience by assisting them in finding summer research opportunities. Some of these opportunities may be through programs offered by the NIH or NSF, internships or research with the Aberdeen Proving Grounds, REU opportunities, and many others!
