Located on the first floor of Barge Memorial Hospital, the Cancer Research Lab serves as a valuable resource for biology students. During the school year, students in the cell biology track write and execute research grant proposals for the course, Independent Study. During the summer, students who participate in the cancer research program, Research Immersion for Undergraduates (RIU), are able to use the lab for full-time research.
The lab’s most recent accomplishment is the acceptance of a poster abstract titled, “Cytotoxic Effect of Almond Extract on AGS Gastric Adenocarcinoma Cell Line in 3D Cell Culture.” The primary author is Hyohyun Esther Park, who participated in the Research Immersion for Undergraduates program this past summer. The poster will be presented at the annual meeting of the American Institute for Cancer Research this November in Washington, D.C.
