Lauren McNally presents at SURF 2024

Lauren McNally, an undergraduate researcher in Mitch Coleman's lab impressed delegates at this year Spring Undergraduate Research Fair (SURF). She presented on Carbon Monoxide Improves Mitochondrial Morphology After Tert-Butyl Hydroperoxide Injury In Human Chondrocytes, a project that shares some overlap with the research of James Byrne's lab. Her research noted that, when CO was applied to mitochondria undergoing oxidative stress, mitochondrial morphology improved 20 hours quicker than with no CO application at all. 

The SURF is sponsored by the Office of the Vice President for Research and was held on April 3, in the Old Capitol Mall.
