The Marquette AHPRC Student Research Initiative is designed to facilitate undergraduate research across campus and support the mission and global goal of the AHPRC. Awardees receive $5,000 during the course of the academic year to pursue their projects.
This year, four students were selected:
- Tess Birmingham, exercise physiology major (mentored by Dr. Christopher Sundberg): “Impact of Blood Flow Restriction on Satellite Cell and Capillary Content in Skeletal Muscle of Older Adults”
- Lilianna Buss, medical laboratory science major (mentored by Dr. Nilanjan Lodh): “Health Monitoring and Educational Intervention: Improving Well-being of the African American Community”
- Joanna Lee, biomedical sciences major (mentored by Dr. Christopher Sundberg): “Potential Role of Cellular Senescence on Skeletal Muscle Fiber Type-Specific Atrophy with Aging”
- Grace Tostrud, exercise physiology major (mentored by Dr. Jacob Capin): “Bone Density in Athletes Participating in Jumping, Cutting, and Pivoting Sports: An Understudied Population”
