St. Lawrence News


Andy Rampersaud '10, of Bronx, NY, has been granted a travel award to present his work at the 2007 Annual Biomedical Research Conference for Minority Students (ABRCMS), to be held in Austin, Texas, November 7 through 10.

Rampersaud will present research he conducted during the summer of 2007, while participating in the Summer Program for Undergraduate Research (SPUR) offered by the Northeast Alliance for Graduate Education and the Professoriate (NEAGEP) and the National Science Foundation (NSF) at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst.

Specifically, his research deals with mapping genes previously identified in a microarray analysis as possible targets of estradiol and dioxin in the developing anteroventral periventricular nucleus. Rampersaud mapped genes in a particular region of the brain affected by a special class of environmental toxins (dioxins), to observe the distribution of genetic transcription of those genes in the brain.

Rampersaud is a neuroscience major; he graduated from the Bronx High School of Science.
