Chemistry undergrad spends summer studying signaling pathways

Michael Disare ’17 spent the summer as one of five undergrad researchers in Cornell’s Aye Lab, working with methods that are completely novel.

Disare and his colleagues at the lab work on studying signaling pathways in cells, and how specific molecules, like oxidants, affect those pathways. 

“It’s the crossroads between chemistry and biology,” he says. “It’s almost like using chemistry as a tool for studying biology.”
