FUTURE researchers present at Drexel

Annie Kopera (Biology ’17) and Jessica Saunders (Biology ’19) presented their research as part of the Drexel Discovery Day event on October 20th.

Their research was funded through the FUTURE program (https://www.ursinus.edu/academics/center-for-science-and-the-common-good/future-summer-research/).  The FUTURE program provides research opportunities for students to work closely together with a faculty mentor.  Annie spent eight weeks this summer in the lab of Rebecca Roberts studying the effect of environmental endocrine disruptors on breast cancer proliferation.  Jessica joined the team for four weeks this summer, with Annie as her mentor.  Both are continuing their work in the lab during the academic year.
