Cancer research

 

The Department of Biochemistry & Molecular Biology is an interdisciplinary, research-intensive program culminating in a capstone research experience.

The following list includes current and historic, individual student research projects, public presentations from conferences, symposia and exhibitions*, and peer-reviewed publications. For abstracts on each project see Students as Scholars.

*“Supported by:” on Student Conference Presentation records indicates the entity or funding mechanism that supported the student’s participation in the conference, i.e. travel expenses, poster costs, etc.  For on-campus conferences, the supporting entity is usually the academic department sponsoring the event.

**“Supported by:” on Student Research Project records indicates the entity or funding mechanism that supported the student’s research costs, i.e. supplies, materials, equipment, stipends, local or international research travel, etc.
