SMART team presents to the faculty

During today's luncheon seminar, our SMART team presented their work to the faculty. Nine members of the team explained how they worked with researchers at MIT to learn to model proteins in the hope of adding to the scientific information being used to determine how these proteins work. The two proteins modeled by our students were NS1, involved in the 1918 flu epidemic, and RNR, which contributes to cancer growth and replication. All the presenters said they learned a lot and enjoyed the ability to work in conjunction with scientists at MIT.
