To all IBH students and faculty members:
With great pride, I'd [Chris Cheng] like to congratulate the graduating IBH seniors who have done excellent independent research and received Distinctions and High Distinctions from SIB for their research effort and paper.
Six of the 16 in the cohort received this SIB honor, and two others who double major in Chemistry will be receiving distinction in Chemistry.
In other words, half of the IBH class of 2016 is graduating with Distinction!
SIB Distinction recipients are:
Feng Zhu: Distinction.
Research - "Electrophysiological and Mass spectrometric investigation of Aplysia Californica L7 neurons". (Feng graduated last December, one semester ahead of the usual 4 year program).
Nathan Stables: HIGH Distinction and the Long Award!
Research - "The Effect of Garden Plant Diversity of Mosquito Species that Act as Infectious Disease Vectors in Central Illinois."
Neil Wagner: HIGH Distinction
Research - "Constructing a Single-Color Fluorescent Indicator Protein for Monitoring CaM-Ca2+ Binding."
Megan McKeon: Distinction
Research - "Phylogenetic and Genomics Study of the Pineapple Cysteine Protease Family Bromelain."
Finey Ruan: HIGH Distinction
Research - "Quantitative Trait Loci (QTL) Analysis of the Genes Controlling the Size of the Seed head (Panicle) under Wet versus Dry Conditions in the Model C4 Grass, Setaria."
Sally Ladsaria: HIGH Distinction
Research - "Pituitary Progenitor Cultures as a Tool to Define the Mechanism of Notch Mediated Cell-Fate Choice."
We celebrate your achievements! You have done the IBH Program tremendously proud!
IBH students travel the world, publish research papers, and do all sorts of amazing things
