Elisa MacColl '16
MacColl ’16 Finds Niche With L.E.K. Consulting

Elisa MacColl ’16 will take her biology background to Boston management consulting firm L.E.K. in September where she will combine her science research experience with business. MacColl was valedictorian of the Class of 2016.  More ...

Levitt Public Health Program Presents Series on Health Care/Hospitals in Utica

The Levitt Center's Public Health Program will present a three-part series of lectures on the topic “Examining Health Care and Hospitals in Utica.” The Levitt series is in conjunction with Professor of Biology Herm Lehman’s Introduction to Public Health course in which students are given a specific issue or problem and spend the semester conducting research on it. This semester's topic is "Do we need to build a new hospital in Utica?"  The series begins on Tuesday, Feb. 23, with Scott Perra, president and CEO of Mohawk Valley Health System, discussing “The Future of Utica, NY, Hospitals.” His talk will begin at 10:30 a.m. in the Events Barn.  More ...

Alex Jones '16
Alex Jones ’16 Investigates Effects of Vitamin C on Metabolism

This summer, Alex Jones ’16 is conducting an important research project to better understand how vitamin C affects growth and development. He is working with Professor of Biology Herm Lehman to study what role vitamin C plays in the metabolism of Manduca sexta, a kind of hornworm that is frequently used in scientific experiments. Jones and Lehman’s research this summer is one part of an ongoing project to determine how exactly vitamin C is necessary for growth and development.  More ...

James Robbins '16
James Robbins ’16 Exploring Public Health Challenges Through Levitt Grant

When most of us think about oral health, we might not think far beyond brushing our teeth and our next trip to the dentist’s office. James Robbins ’16, however, knows that there’s much more to it than that. This summer as a Levitt Summer Research Fellow he is researching water fluoridation for improved public health. Working closely with Professor of Biology Herm Lehman, Robbins has been researching the public health debate about water fluoridation.  More ...

Students Research Neurotransmitters in Fruit Fly Cells

It might sound surprising, but studying two neurotransmitters found in drosophila, a genus of small flies, may help us better understand human brain chemistry.  While most people may not regularly think about neurotransmitters in our brains, these chemicals are the stimuli behind our frustrations when stuck in traffic or our elevated stress levels when facing a seemingly never-ending pile of assignments. Ashley Perritt ’14 and Niko Wagner ’14 are studying tyramine beta hydroxylase (TBh) and TBh-Related (TBhR) neurotransmitter genes in drosophila to better understand their functions.  More ...

Passing the Torch

Agne Jakubauskaite ’13 has come full circle in the course of her undergraduate research of the newly discovered gene TBhR. Jakubauskaite, a biology concentrator, spent the summer of 2011 learning the ins and outs of protein expression and synthesizing and has now passed on those skills to Jessica Li ’14, a biology concentrator and Olusegun Ogunwomoju ’15.   More ...

Unlocking the Puzzle of Neurological Disease

The formation of a synapse, the junction between nerve cells, is one of the most the most important and critical stages of nervous system development, and in many cases improper synapse formation is the underlying cause of neurological disease.  The Lehman Lab has discovered a new gene that appears to encode an enzyme that is expressed as synapses develop in invertebrate and vertebrate nervous systems. This summer four students are working to synthesize four different enzymes to explore the function of this novel gene product.  More ...
