I am a Biochemistry major and Jewish Studies minor (class of 2019) at Muhlenberg College. My Culminating Undergraduate Experience (CUE), Advanced Biochemistry (BCM441), is a course “concerned with the content, presentation and evaluation of modern biochemistry.” In the wise words of Dr. Keri Colabroy, “while studying metabolism, we will investigate applications to human disease and biotechnology, explore current topics in biochemistry, and learn to identify and report on exciting new discoveries within the field. We will reflect on and engage with the process by which biochemistry is practiced and published to the scientific community and to non-expert audiences.”
Follow these steps to make the most of my website!
1. Visit my PRIMER PAGE to learn the background on Mitochondrial Encephalomyopathy, Lactic Acidosis, and Stroke-Like Symptoms (MELAS) and become familiar with the terminology
2. Read my POST for scientists and non-experts summarizing this disease
3. Check out the THEME PAGES to investigate MELAS from a biochemist’s lens (me!)
