Our department offers numerous undergrads opportunities to work in research laboratories. Pictured here: Sierra Archibald in Aziz Sancar lab works along side of senior researchers whose work focuses on DNA damage repair, cell cycle checkpoints, circadian clock. DNA is damaged every day by numerous mechanisms, such as UV light. Successful repair of this damage is essential for healthy life. Specifically this lab focuses on nucleotide excision repair and its regulation by cell cycle checkpoints and the circadian clock. Understanding these processes and their interactions can help us better understand human disease and treatment response.
