Nathan Wainscott Awarded ASPET Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship

Nathan Wainscott, an undergraduate student enrolled at the University of Louisville has been awarded a Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship by the American Society for Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics.  Nathan is testing the ability of several lead compounds targeting the anaphase promoting complex to arrest the cell cycle and induce apoptosis in lung cancer cell lines. He will then determine the cell cycle phase in which this arrest is induced by the presence of specific cycle markers.  Nathan is working in the laboratory of  Professor J. Christopher States in the Department of Pharmacology & Toxicology.
