Keith Willner '11
Keith Willner ’11 Studies the Chemistry of Butterflies
As a high school student, Keith Willner ’11 was very interested in chemistry but had no interest in going to Hamilton because he was a local student and felt it was too close to home. “My parents dragged me on a tour of campus.” But as soon as he entered the Science Center, with its towering glass windows and immaculate, well-equipped labs, his sullen attitude went away. “I was hooked,” he said. Now Willner is a budding chemist working for the Silas D. Childs Professor of Chemistry Robin Kinnel. The goal of his research this summer is to establish that the (-) enantiomer of germacrene D is the principal chemical signal for feeding and egg laying in the female Phyciodes tharos (Pearl Crescent) butterfly.  More ...

Jason McGavin '12 and Matthew Baxter '11.
Peptides are Subject of Matthew Baxter '11 and Jason McGavin '12 Research
Jason McGavin '12 and Matthew Baxter '11 understand that a peptide's structure can say a lot about how it functions in the body. This summer, they are studying two versions of the peptide Piscidin – Piscidin 1 and Piscidin 3. They will work alongside Associate Professor of Chemistry Myriam Cotten, whose previous work in this field has illustrated that there is a distinct difference between them.  More ...

Courtney Carroll '11 Examining Neuropeptide Y's Role in Obesity
Obesity in the United States has become a major concern for obvious reasons. Courtney Carroll '11 is working this summer with Associate Professor of Chemistry Myriam Cotten to find out whether Neuropeptide Y has a direct effect on food intake and decreased physical activity. The amount of Neuropeptide Y lurking in the microscopic corners of a person's cells may have an impact on his or her diet. More ...
