Supriya is working in working in the laboratory of Dr. Rodger Liddle, Professor of Medicine, Duke University Medical Center, and Chief of Gastroenterology, VA Medical Center, Durham, NC. Her project aims to investigate the cellular mechanisms involved in the synthesis and release of signaling molecule, leukotriene B4, from pancreatic acinar cells in response to inflammatory agents known to cause pancreatitis. KJ is working in Brad Johnson's lab on yeast telomeric DNA. Josh is working in Dr. Robert Pasternak's lab on hemin and malaria.

*RP - research presentation
Presentations: Students select the topic based on the most current quadruplex related literature. Presentations length is no longer than 30 min including questions. Students should e-mail the copy of the selected paper to all the lab members no later than Wednesday noon before the group meeting. This will give the rest of us enough time to read papers before the presentation. Feel free to ask me for topic or paper suggestions.
Research Data: Another 30 min of our group meeting will be devoted to discussion of the lab research. Each student needs to prepare two slides - one with the most exciting result of the week (and be prepared to explain why it is so exciting using chalk board) and another with the tentative research plan for the coming week. Note, the slide on the most exciting result should not contain more than two figures/spectra.
Research presentation: summarizes all research conducted over the summer. Format: 20-25 min plus 5 min for questions. Power point presentation should include background, research design, discussion, and conclusion.
Research paper: due at the end of the 8th week for all but Cole.
