Alyssa Lesko, fourth-year Biology graduate student, was recently selected to present her work at the 2017 Future Fellow Research Conference (FFRC) at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee. Lesko will present her work on how the loss of tumor suppressor Adenomatous Polyposis Coli (APC) and subsequently how its normal functions leads to tumorigenesis. Read more.
Researchers have discovered a way to make influenza visible to the naked eye, by engineering dye molecules to target a specific enzyme of the virus.
By understanding how they respond to toxic elements, scientists can look at how environmental changes caused by agriculture and road runoff or warming temperatures and climate change could impact populations in lakes, rivers and standing bodies of water.
Chemistry graduate student recently won the Young Scientist Award at the MSB 2017 conference, a gathering of scientists in the Netherlands that focus on microscale separations and bioanalysis. The Young Scientist Award was established to recognize researchers under the age of 35 in the field who set an outstanding example for other scientists. The award specifically recognizes Lum’s work on developing new forensics technology.
The Indiana State Department of Health and the Indiana Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute (CTSI) has awarded Cody J. Smith, the Elizabeth and Michael Gallagher Assistant Professor of Biological Sciences and affiliated member of the Center for Stem Cells and Regenerative Medicine, a Spinal Cord and Brain Injury Research Fund (SCBIRF) grant.

We are pleased to announce that Dr. Emily Tsui will be joining the faculty at Notre Dame as an Assistant Professor of Chemistry & Biochemistry this summer. Dr. Tsui is currently completing a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Washington with Prof. Daniel Gamelin, studying the surface chemistry and photophysics of doped semiconductor nanocrystals. In 2014, Dr. Tsui received her Ph.D. in Inorganic Chemistry from the California Institute of Technology, where her work focused on biomimetic multimetallic clusters, under the advisement of Prof. Theodor Agapie.…
