 There is a variety of projects ranging from ecological studies to projects focused on biomedical research.  Dr. D is overseeing projects that center on studies of cancer cell growth when treated with various supplements that advertise anti-cancer properties. 

 The following biomedical research projects will be presented by students for their finale reports:  

“Effects of Omega-3 Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids on the MDA-MB-231 Breast Cancer Cell Line”

“Effects of Resvesterol on the Human Breast Cancer Cell Line, MDA-MB-231”

“Effects of Green Tea Extract on the growth of MDA-MB-321, a Human Breast Cancer Cell Line with Invasive Properties”

The poster session will be held in the Finch-Gray Science Center on Monday, April 27th.  Please feel free to stop by at any time between 2:30-4:30pm, as the students will be available to discuss their projects and their findings.
