Through dedication to their scholarly efforts, they are now co-authors on two recently published manuscripts that explored the biophysical properties underpinning toxicity in the development of Alzheimer's disease and characterized a unique, therapeutically-relevant small molecule that protects cell membranes from the toxins innate to multiple protein misfolding diseases, including Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases (read full article here:

In addition to these publications, CDTs Ryan Kreiser and Aidan Wright were recognized for their outstanding research efforts with an American Chemical Society Undergraduate Research Symposium Paper Award and USMA Project's Day Award, respectively, and 2LT Alex Albright is now beginning Medical School at Brown University.
