Up-Close Internship Lets Caitlin Williams ’11 Examine Career in Neurology
Although she was standing only two feet away in the operating room, Caitlin Williams ’11 was unable to see to the bottom of the large hole carved in the patient's brain. Using a technique called frontal craniotomy, the surgeon was removing a three-inch section that contained a massive tumor. The procedure made an impression on Williams, who is interning this summer for the Neurological Institute of Columbia-Presbyterian Hospital. “It truly affirmed my love of medicine and my passion to be a doctor,” she said.

Order From Simplicity is Research Topic
Pandemonium is at work even in the most tranquil places. For instance, a young girl playing in the sand on a beach may not realize it, but the sand pile she has created is a study in complexity. As she sprinkles more sand on the top of the pile, a set of mathematical equations govern how each grain behaves, but the way the pile functions as a whole is seemingly random. Gregory Schwedock ’10 is interested in how order emerges from such simplicity. More ...

Students Researching Chemicals in Fly and Bee Brains
Although the brain of a fruit fly or a honey bee might seem too small to be very active, chemicals do rage underneath the surface tissue. For example, octopamine is a neurotransmitter that plays a major role in learning and memory processes of Drosophila melanogaster (common fruit fly) and Apis mellifera (honey bee). More ...

Living on Martha's Vineyard: Paradise or Predicament?
Growing up on Martha’s Vineyard, Samantha Rabin ’11 never thought her home was that different from any other. But now that Rabin is older, she realizes that because she is surrounded by crowded hotels and sun-scorched bathers, her seemingly commonplace life is actually dominated by an unusual economy. She is working with Associate Professor of Sociology Jennifer Irons to assess how a person’s financial position shapes his or her relationship to the community. More ...
Amanda Nardi '11
Amanda Nardi ’11 Internship Blends Books and Fashion
A “boutique” literary agency is one that is exclusive and usually very small. The name is also perfect for Amanda Nardi’s ’11 purposes – it brings together both her fondness for books and for the trendy frontier of modern fashion. She has an internship this summer at the Harvey-Klinger Literary Agency, and has been working as an assistant to Sarah Crowe, a literary agent who specializes in fashion literature and young adult novels. More ...

Interaction of Galectin-1 With Carbohydrates Examined
Galectin-1 is a small protein with big responsibility. Its over-expression is associated with treatment of inflammation-related diseases and muscular dystrophies. Conversely, its under-expression is ideal for therapeutic measures against cancer and HIV development. The dual role it plays in the regulation of the immune system makes it a medical celebrity, especially when paired with its ligands. More ...
