Final Poster Presentations: Biochemical Principles of Life at the Molecular Level

The students in Biochemistry 330 warmly invite the community to a showing of their poster exhibits of their final group projects.

The posters represent various aspects of the biochemical effects of stress on human health, and how stress gets played out from the molecular to the clinical, personal, and community and public health level, with the stress hormone, cortisol, playing a central role. Topics include the benefits of yoga and other forms of exercise and sports, how to reduce stress-related anxiety in college, the stress of family members dealing with relatives who have Alzheimer's, social support among the elderly, the health of international students, the stresses o being a non-tenured versus a tenured faculty member, innovative approaches to deal with bullying, and various aspects of eating disorders, including the impact on women sports.

The exhibit will be open on Thursday, December 6, from 3:30 until 5 pm at the Frost Library and is open to the whole community. Food and refreshments will be served. Feel free to drop by any time between 3:30 and 5 pm.
