    Craig Kutz
    B.S. in Chemistry & Biosciences, 2009
    Student in Medical Scientist Training Program, Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC), Charleston, SC
    I am a student in the M.D./Ph.D. program at MUSC and a part of the College of Medicine and the College of Graduate Studies. My future research will focus on cell signaling crosstalk between retinoic acid and TGFb signaling pathways in cardiac development. I am currently taking medical school classes in preparation for the Step 1 US Medical Licensing Exam in the spring.

    Kristina Anderson
    B.S in Biochemistry & Biotechnology, 2011
    Research Assistant, Center for Biopharmaceutical Research and Production at NDSU, Fargo, ND
    My job duties will vary greatly each day and depend on the progress of the center. I am currently working on research involving a protein known as the sodium hydrogen exchanger isoform 1 (NHE1) and its impact on non-small cell lung cancer. The types of experiments I have been using since I started include cell proliferation, migration, adhesion and stress fiber formation.

    B.A. in Biology- emphasis in E cology and Evolutionary Biology - Minor in Chemistry, Mathematics, & Music, 2010
    Graduate Student, North Carolina State University, Raleigh, NC
    My thesis project is investigating habitat selection, diet, and movements of coyotes at Fort Bragg, North Carolina.

    B.A. in Biology- emphasis in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology , 2008
    Master of Science Candidate, The University of Lethbridge, Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada
    As a graduate student, I study the physiological and behavioral aspects of trematode infection in fish. This has ranged from determining induced oxidative stress in the liver tissue of infected fish to shoaling, or social living, as a behavioral "> avoidance strategy to these non-contagious, mobile parasites. To accomplish this, I devise experiments in both the lab and field, with the aid of extensive literature review.
