Boahen majored in chemistry-biology with a minor in Francophone studies.
Bembenek is majoring in chemistry-biology and psychology. Her research is focused on investigating changes in the ER-alpha estradiol protein receptor in sexually dimorphic and socially relevant brain regions of rats to determine potential functions of these specific brain areas. “It was a great honor receiving the TriBeta grant,” she says, “and it greatly aided in obtaining necessary resources to further our research.”
The grants are intended to support undergraduate research.
