This spring, Dr. Price and his research group—Raquel Ferreira '18, Sadie Piatt '18 and Stephen Parziale '17—attended and presented their research at the Biophysical Society Conference in San Francisco. The research that the three presented was titled, "Measuring the kinetics of DNA cleavage with single-molecule resolution." The group, led by Dr. Price and collaborating with researchers at Harvard Medical School, studies the facilitated diffusion of restriction enzymes on DNA. As always, it is great to see students getting to travel the country to contribute their on-campus research to the global scientific community.
Chemistry & Physics
Chemistry & Physics
Chemistry is everywhere. From the simplest elements of life to the many aspects of high-tech society, our world can be understood through chemistry.
At Emmanuel, we believe that practicing chemistry in the lab or in daily life opens the mind to critical thinking and problem solving. Our students collaborate with faculty on real-world research and, as early as their first year, get a true sense of what it means to study chemistry at the graduate and professional level. They are offered unmatched opportunities to engage and interact in the subject through our state-of-the-art Maureen Murphy Wilkens Science Center, which is equipped with the modern instrumentation and computer technology used intensively in laboratory courses and student-directed research. Our partnership with Merck Research Laboratories-Boston and our location in the world-renowned Longwood Medical and Academic Area provides opportunities for internships and mentorships with leaders in the field.
