AFPE Scholarships Support Student Research at ONU

May 30, 2008
Two Ohio Northern University pharmacy students are the recipients of 2008 American Foundation for Pharmaceutical Education (AFPE) "Gateway to Research" Scholarships, each worth $5,000.

Rachael Waterson, a third-year pharmacy student from Benzonia, Mich., will work with Dr. Boyd Rorabaugh on a project titled "Differential Coupling of ?1 - Adrenergic Receptor Subtypes to Transactivation of the Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor."

Patrick Schmees, a third-year pharmacy student from Fairfield, Ohio, will collaborate with Dr. Amy Stockert on a project titled "The Reaction of Benzotriazole-1-acetonitrile with xanthine oxidase."

The Gateway to Research scholarship program is designed to increase the number of students who undertake a faculty-mentored research program. The funds provided by the awards are designated for student stipends and material support through the upcoming academic school year.
