KU student from Tonganoxie presents work at symposium
A Kansas University biochemistry major from Tonganoxie shared his work this past month at the University of Kansas-Haskell Indian Nations University Undergraduate Research Symposium.
Matt Behymer presented “Investigating the Tight Junction Modulatory Activity of EC-4 Hexapeptides from E-cadherin” during the symposium, which was April 17 on the Haskell campus.
Behymer was one of 32 undergraduate- and graduate-level students from KU and Haskell who presented in the areas of science and engineering at the symposium. They participate in programs that encourage underrepresented students to pursue research careers in biomedical science, including the Bridges to the Baccalaureate Program at Haskell and KU, the Research Initiative for Scientific Enhancement Program at Haskell, the Initiative for Maximizing Student Development Program at KU and the Post-Baccalaureate Research Education Program at KU.
