Tara Patrick studies in the laboratory of Dr. Shailesh Lal of the Department of Biological Sciences. She studies the impact of the Helitron family of transposable elements on the expression and evolution of the eukaryotic genome.
Iva Sinamati performs research with Dr. Fabia Battistuzzi of the Department of Biological Sciences. She performs evolutionary analyses of low complexity regions in prokaryotes.
Professor Shailesh Lal, the President of the Oakland University Chapter of Sigma Xi (the national scientific research society), says that “this meeting represents an important opportunity for these outstanding young students to develop as researchers. We are very proud of them and I am certain they will represent OU well.”
Funds to send these students to this conference were supplied by the Oakland University Chapter of Sigma Xi, the Department of Biological Sciences, the Center for Biomedical Research, the Eye Research Institute, and by a grant from the National Science Foundation.
