Martha Cavanaugh-O'Keefe: Optimization of a Testing Method for Genetically Modified Traits in Maize
Fang-Yuan Chang: Covalent Trapping of the Human 8-Oxoguanine DNA Glycosylase (hOGG1):Nucleosomal DNA Complex, Advisor: Professor Karl Haushalter. I graduated from Harvey Mudd College as a Joint Chemistry and Biology major and will be pursuing a Ph.D. in Biomedical Science (Biochemistry) at The Rockefeller University starting Fall 2007.
Amanda Hickman: Chiral Titanium Amino-Alcohol Catalysts for the Intramolecular Hydroamination of Aminoallenes
Frances Hocutt: Towards an Improved Biomimetic Synthesis of the Endiandric Acids
John-Andrew Kouzelos: Theoretical and Experimental Investigations of Titanium Amino-Alcohol Complexes
Michelle Lum: Synthesis of Chitosan Functionalized with Acid-Amines; Advisor, Professor Shenda Baker. I will be working with the Beckman Laser Institute for the summer at UCI. My plans after that are to work for a year or two before applying to grad school.
