Description

Earlier this semester, student-pairs in our class each began a project called 'Scientists Who Changed the World'. We were assigned a notable 20th or 21st century Scientist whose work not only made a profound impact in their specialized field, but also in the world at large. Our job was to investigate the personal journey of the Scientist, with a focus on any professional, societal, or scientific difficulties they many have faced, as well as giving an overview of their actual research. My partner, Ashley Lewis, and I were assigned Dr. Suren Sehgal. Under the guidance of Dr. Hess and Mrs. Burt-Nicholas, we began our research by exploring items reserved for this project at the College of Dupage Library. And, in brief, we branched out to find more sophisticated articles on the drug in question (and it's related chemical pathways), business journals to explore the commercial-side of this story, and web-based audio and video sources related to Dr. Sehgal and his work. We composed our findings into a slide-presentation (without an accompanying typed report - a project criterion) and presented it to our class. A few important keywords related to this project are: -rapamycin -mTOR -anti-cancer -anti-aging -David Sabatini

Faculty Supervisor: Dr. Kathleen Hess
