Cohort 11

Linda Agyemang

Linda Agyemang joined the MARC program in 2011 and is currently majoring in health and nutritional sciences. She is currently working in Associate Professor Christian Grov's lab, whose research centers on the sexual health of gay and bisexual men. Work in this lab explores drug use, sexual compulsivity and the role of the Internet in revolutionizing the sexual networks of gay and bisexual men.

Ashley Henry

Ashley Henry joined the MARC program in 2011 and is currently majoring in health and nutritional sciences. She works in Professor Kathleen Axen's lab, whose research is mainly concerned with type-2 diabetes. Axen's lab uses animal models of obesity to study the development and treatment of the disease, with a focus on the effect of diet composition on the development of insulin resistance, a condition in which insulin is less effective in its metabolic actions.

Sanchez Jarrett

Sanchez Jarrett joined the MARC program in 2011 and is currently majoring in chemistry. Sanchez works in two labs: (1) with Associate Professor Andrez Jarzecki, whose expertise is computational chemistry and who is researching the prediction of molecular and spectroscopic properties (UV, infrared, Raman and resonance Raman) of molecules with a special focus on transition and heavy metal compounds; and (2) with Professor Richard Magliozzo, whose lab focuses on physical biochemistry of metalloproteins and metalloenzymes, electron paramagnetic resonance spectroscopy, rapid reaction kinetics, optical stopped-flow and rapid freeze-quench methods

Lukman Solala

Lukman Solala joined the MARC program in 2011 and is currently majoring in chemistry. He is working with Professor Roberto Sánchez-Delgado, whose area of expertise is inorganic/organometallic chemistry. While working in Sánchez-Delgado's lab, Lukman does research on metal-based drugs against malaria and cancer and the development of new catalysts derived from transition metal complexes or nano-particles for reactions related to the production of cleaner fossil fuels or improved biofuels.

Lumena Louis

Lumena Louis joined the MARC program in 2011 and is currently majoring in chemistry. Like Luman, she works with Professor Roberto Sánchez-Delgado, whose area of expertise is inorganic/organometallic chemistry. Her research involves metal-based drugs against malaria and cancer and the development of new catalysts derived from transition metal complexes or nano-particles for reactions related to the production of cleaner fossil fuels or improved biofuels.
