Previous Graduate IMSD-MERGE Scholar

  • Andreyah Pope
    Andreyah Pope
    Biochemistry and Structural Biology, Doctoral Program Andreyah is a Long Island native. She received her undergraduate degree in Chemistry from Stony Brook. As an undergraduate, she worked with Dr. Steven Smith as a National Institutes of Health (NIH) Maximizing Access to Research Careers (MARC) Scholar. Her work in Dr. Smith's lab resulted in a first-author publication in the journal Biochimica et Biophysica Acta (BBA). For her graduate studies, Andreyah continues to work in Dr. Steven Smith's lab and is interested in refining the common activation mechanism for G-protein coupled receptors using rhodopsin as a model.
  •  Chantal Adlam
    Chantal Adlam
     Chemistry, Doctoral Program Based on the CUNY Class of 2014 Fixed Profile: Chantal moved to the United States in 2008, entering the CUNY Justice Academy program at Borough of Manhattan COmmunity College. This allowed her to transfer to John Jay where she obtained her B.S. in Forensic Science, and eventually moved on to obtain her doctorate in Chemistry from Stony Brook University. She credits her upbringing in Jamaica as the source of inspiration for the sciences. 
  • Dominic Moronta
    dominic moronta
    Chemistry, Doctoral Program Dominic is originally from Queens, NY, but moved to Arizona for high school. He went on to receive his B.S. in Chemistry from the University of Arizona. As an undergraduate student, Dominic conducted research on a novel sulfur copolymer and its applications in lithium-sulfur batteries and optics. His interest in research was further stimulated when he began examining the use of waste materials as components in new and highly applicable technologies. Dominic's current work is on functional nanomaterials for energy and bio technologies where the focus is on understanding structure-property relationships. 
  • Warren Buzzell
    Biomedical Engineering, Doctoral Program Warren is highly motivated to integrate his Biomedical and Manufacturing Engineering backgrounds to aid innovation toward additive and subtractive manufacturing, as well as Six Sigma, techniques with biomedical applications. His research experience includes 3-D printing molds and hydrogel fabrication for traumatic brain injury studies and the development of a gas impermeable chamber, which he CNC machined out of aluminum, for cancer on a chip research. He is currently working as a research scientist for burn related clinical studies where he assists with all animal related activities and performs data analyses on the burns.
