Dr. Michael Borland, Associate Professor of Chemistry and Biochemistry, received a Society of Toxicology (SOT) Undergraduate Faculty Grant to support the training of undergraduate students through toxicology-based research experiences. Dr. Borland used this grant to support the research being conducted by BU undergraduate biochemistry major, Taylor Runkle. Ms. Runkle is investigating an isosteric selenium-substituted PPARβ/δ ligand as a novel human malignant melanoma therapeutic and plans to present this research at the 2019 Intercollegiate Student Chemists Convention at Gettysburg College and the 2020 Society of Toxicology meeting in Anaheim, CA. Dr. Borland was asked to blog about his experiences in undergraduate toxicology research.
