...to Dr. Mac Lippert (Nov 19 guest blogger) and SMC Bio alumni Ryan Larson and Nate Schoenly on the recent publication of some of their research in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. Dr. Lippert is the first author, with Ryan and Nate among the coauthors, on this collaborative research article titled "Role for topoisomerase 1 in transcription-associated mutagenesis in yeast".
Our biology faculty provide many research opportunities for students, some of which have resulted in students appearing as coauthors on professional research journal publications. In addition, faculty often bring their research students to professional conferences to present and discuss their research. These experiences are quite valuable for students wishing to go on to various professional or research-oriented graduate programs after leaving St. Mike's.
