LUMINESCENT PROBES FOR IMAGING REACTIVE SULFUR, OXYGEN, AND NITROGEN SPECIES IN LIVING SYSTEMS;

NAGPRA Curation of the Richland Creek Archaeological Project Collection
Jordan Hardin '19 is studying and classifying human and funerary remains under NAGPRA guidelines.This project aims to bring this collection up to curation standards by investigating the human remains and AFOs from four sites in this collection.
Chemotherapeutics Research
Kasi Holcomb-Webb '19 implements Real-Time PCR used to quantitatively measure the level of expression of P-glycoprotein and Breast Cancer Resistant Protein in cancercell lines, as part of the Vogel-Wise lab research for reducing toxicity to healthy cells, while increasing the success of chemotherapeutic drugs.

Luminescent Probes for Imaging Reactive Sulfur, Oxygen, and Nitrogen Species in Living Systems
Becky Jenkins is working with a luminescent probe to test a Ru(II) complex's potential as a hydrogen sulfide donor from the irradiation of a red light source both in vitro and in vivo. She is also synthesizing a hydrazinyl naphthalimide fluorescent probe to detect the reactive carbonyl speciesacetaldehyde.
