Seminar Projects

To fulfill the requirements for graduation in Biochemistry students develop research proposals, projects that are modeled after the process whereby scientists procure funding for research. They then defend them before faculty and students.  Recent senior projects include:

Comparative Biomarker Analysis of Male and Female Breast Cancer for Improved Combined Diagnosis and Treatment

Phenylcinnamides Coupled to a Peptide Vector as a Novel Therapeutic for Brain Tumors

Male Birth Control through Small Molecule Inhibition of BRDT

Epigenetic Plasticity of Arabidopsis in a Changing Environment Through the Regulation of Flowering Locus C (FLC) 

An Investigation of the Morphine Transport in Malpighian Tubules of Calliphora stygia and its Implications in Forensic Entomotoxicology

The Effect of Post-mortem Index (PMI) and Temperature on eNOS mRNA in Mouse Heart Tissue

Antiangiogenic Effects of Sunitinib and Cyclophosphamide Combination Treatments on Mouse 9L Gliosarcoma

Laboratory-directed Protein Evolution of Butyryl-CoA Dehydrogenase (BCD) from Clostridium Acetobutylicum
