UREP Student Brianna Hoegermeyer Gives Report at Kentucky Honors Roundtable
Brianna Hoegermeyer, UREP student from 2020-2021 and an honor student at Thomas More University presented her Wood Hudson project at the Kentucky Honors Roundtable at Murray State University on March 4-5. This conference is a collegiate conference of different college honors programs from around the state. Brianna's project was one of two abstracts accepted from Thomas More University, and one of 48 overall.
Brianna's research project was entitled “Phosphoserine Phosphatase (PSPH) Expression and Breast Cancer Progression in Women.” She studied the serine biosynthesis pathway in surgical specimens and proposed that increased serine biosynthesis was essential for development and progression of breast cancer in women. Brianna did this immunohistochemistry project at Wood Hudson Cancer Research Laboratory, along with two other Thomas More students, Anna Oliverio and Angel Rapp.
Brianna is a Senior at Thomas More University and President of the Tri-Beta Biological Honors Society.
