Cohort 11

Linda Agyemang

Joined the MARC program in 2011 and is currently a student at Brooklyn College majoring in Health and Nutritional Sciences. She is currently working in Dr. 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

Joined the MARC program in 2011 and is currently a student at Brooklyn College majoring in Health and Nutritional Sciences.  She works in Dr. Kathleen Axen's lab whose research is mainly concerned with type 2 diabetes. Dr. 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

Joined the MARC program in 2011 and is currently a student at Brooklyn College majoring in Chemistry. Sanchez is currently working in two labs. First with Dr.Andrez Jarzecki whose expertise is computational chemistry, he 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.   Sanchez also works with Dr. 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

Joined the MARC program in 2011 and is currently a student at Brooklyn College majoring in Chemistry. He is a Chemistry major and is currently working with Dr. Roberto Sanchez-Delgado whose area of expertise is inorganic/organometallic chemistry. While working in Dr. 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

Joined the MARC program in 2011 and is currently a student at Brooklyn College majoring in Chemistry. She, like Lukman, also works with Dr. Roberto Sanchez-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.
