Finding a school that would let her study her twin passions at a high level was difficult until she found Bryant.
Profs. Qin Leng and Hong Yang used used advanced biotechnology techniques to discover the mechanism of this rare preservation of biomolecules.
Now an applications engineer, she was inspired "to try different aspects of science" as she worked with her faculty mentor, environmental engineer and Assoc. Prof. Dan McNally.
Six Bryant students conducted graduate-level research for 10 weeks this summer and presented their findings at annual conference at URI.
A family of potent compounds developed by Prof. Chris Reid and his students is one step closer to being patented.
One group has filed a provisional patent for new compounds for an antibiotic; another is exploring how legacy pollution has affected the Providence River estuary.
Bryant science students find that the hands-on research they've undertaken in Bryant labs through projects funded by Rhode Island EPSCoR has given them a competitive edge.
Working with Chinese researchers and archaeologists, professors Yang, Leng, and their students identified short periods of drought that opened new areas for rice farming.
Majoring in Biology or Environmental Science at Bryant means small classes and faculty who will join you on a journey of discovery – one in which you will realize your strengths and passions through programs tailored specifically to your interests.
Conducting research around the globe in partnership with Bryant's science faculty has given her the opportunity to explore, travel, and "understand myself."
Bryant's individual attention, multiple research opportunities, and the option to personalize her major bring Vickers a step closer to career as a chief sustainability officer.
Next steps on his path: a career in brain science. Miller hopes to become a professor of biological psychology.
