Graduate student publishes nine papers

OU graduate students have the opportunity to launch a successful career in science. For example, Deepti Khanduri, a spring 2011 graduate of the Biomedical Sciences: Health and Environmental Chemistry PhD program, published nine papers in peer-reviewed journals for her dissertation research. Her most recent, Highly Oxidizing Excited States of One-Electron-Oxidized Guanine in DNA: Wavelength and pH Dependence (Journal of the American Chemical Society, Volume 133, Pages 4527-4537, 2011), is her first as lead author. The research showed that double stranded DNA is able to protect itself by transfer of photo-oxidative damage to the surrounding environment. Dr. Khanduri’s mentor is Distinguished Professor and CBR member Michael Sevilla, of the Department of Chemistry. The third coauthor is senior researcher Amitava Adhikary. Sevilla's research is supported by a grant from the National Institutes of Health.
Graduate student Deepti Khanduri already has published nine papers in peer-reviewed journals.
