Emily M. Schutzenhofer is from Stafford, Virginia and is a graduate of Colonial Forge High School. She is an Echols Scholar double majoring in Chemistry with a Specialization in Biochemistry (including the ACS certificate) and Global Development Studies with a concentration in Global Public Health.
Nick Lee is a fourth-year Distinguished Major in Biochemistry from Winchester, Virginia. He conducts research in the School of Medicine in the laboratory of Anindya Dutta, M.D., Ph.D., where he investigates the function of the CRL4(Cdt2), an E3 ubiquitin ligase, in the cell cycle. The complex is responsible for marking cell cycle regulators for degradation by the proteasome. Previously, he worked to elucidate the stabilizing role that 14-3-3 exerted over Cdt2. His thesis is focused on characterizing the interaction between BRAF35 and Cdt2.
Andrew was born in Silver Spring, MD but attended Oakton High School in Vienna, VA. He will be graduating from UVA with a Bachelors of Science in Chemistry. Since January 2012, Andrew has worked in the research group of Dr. W. Dean Harman.
Joshua attended Franklin County High School in Rocky Mount, VA. He is pursuing a B.Sc. in Chemistry with a Specialization in Biochemistry with ACS certification.
Daniel grew up in Arlington, Virginia and attended Washington-Lee High School. He will be graduating UVA with a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry with a Specialization in Chemical Physics and a Bachelor of Arts in Physics.
Ellen Howerton grew up in Fairfax, Virginia and graduated from Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology. She will graduate from UVa with a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry with a biochemistry specialization.
Youlim was born in Seoul, South Korea and grew up in Nanjing, China. She is graduating with the Bachelor of Science in Chemistry with the ACS certification from the University.
I am from Atlanta, GA, and I went to The Lovett School. I will graduate with a BSc in Chemistry and a BA in Studio Art, painting concentration. I stated research with the Demas lab Spring 2016, focusing on fluorescence anisotropy. I have worked with the oxygen sensor Ru(bpy)3, Fraser’s promising boron complex nanoparticles, and fluorescent dye-polymer equilibria that model biological binding systems. Measuring the anisotropy of these compounds gives valuable information about the excited state(s) and information about binding.
Maggie grew up in Yorktown, VA, but went to high school at the International School of Provence-Alpes-Cote-D’azur in Manosque, France. She is pursuing a Bachelor of Science with Specialization in Biochemistry and a Minor in Religious Studies with a concentration in Islam.
Jack Cronk grew up in Charlottesville, Virginia and graduated from Western Albemarle High School. He is currently pursuing a Bachelors of Science in Chemistry with a specialization in Biochemistry along with ACS certification. Jack conducts research in the School of Medicine in the laboratory of Dr. Michael Brown, Ph.D. Over the last 3 semesters, Jack has designed and utilized genetic approaches to systematically and specifically induce mutations in the genes of natural killer (NK) cell receptors.
