SEED Student Becomes Published Author
Christopher Miller, along with Adam Elsaidy, spent this past summer working in the Summer Academic Research Experience (SARE), an intensive 8-week program that exposes outstanding scholars to biomedical research at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. The program emphasizes academic development, professionalism, and an opportunity to participate fully in scientific research.
Christopher worked on a project to determine how a major protein, called myosin, finds its appropriate destination in the complex milieu of a cell. Myosin proteins are responsible for contractility, which is easily observed in the contraction of a muscle, such as the beating of a human heart or when an athlete curls a dumbbell. This work will have impact for future studies of many diseases, such as cancer, which result from defects in myosin function.
As a result of his hard work, Christopher is a co-author on a scientific publication, which was just accepted for publication in the professional journal, Molecular Biology of the Cell.
