The UNI chapter of the Society of Physics Students has received a 2021 Outstanding Chapter Award from the Society of Physics Students National Council. This award is typically received by less that 15% of all SPS chapters across the nation. This year, this honor has been bestowed on just 80 of 844 chapters.
What if you could locate a cancer cell, and use the cell’s natural repair process to destroy it? You’d be one step closer to a cure for cancer.
And that’s exactly what students in the UNI Department of Physics are working on.
This summer, a group of three undergraduate students in the department have partnered with the University of Iowa Department of Biochemistry in a unique, collaborative research effort to study cells, and their natural self-repairing mechanisms.
