Spotlights

During the spring of 2018, David Lasansky applied to the Undergraduate Biological Research Program (UBRP) and was selected to join the program for the summer while continuing his research under the direction of Dr. Indraneel Ghosh. Unfortunately, David ended up breaking his arm while roller-skating at an end of the semester meeting for U of A College of Science ambassadors which completely stopped his ability to do research for over 10 weeks.

Alejandro Villalobos’ interest in science sparked in a small border town in Douglas, Arizona. Alejandro was a student athlete highly interested in chemistry, biology and basketball during his four years of high school. As a high school senior, he had to decide between playing basketball at a two-year college or attending the University of Arizona to major in biochemistry. Of course, his passion for science overcame everything else and decided to attend the UofA.

Professor Jon Njardarson has been honored with a prestigious Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS) Fellowship. This fellowship is awarded to scientists in various disciplines, including a few chemists each year. In 2003, this honor was also bestowed on Professor Michael Brown (CBC).
