Oleg Makarevich

Meet Oleg...
He is a Biological Sciences major and a current Undergraduate Research Award (URA) scholar. He is also a tutor at the Chemistry Tutorial Center. His future plans includes obtaining an MD/PhD and conduct research while being a specialist and continuing to see patients.

His research explored the microscopic world of rRNA by examining a non-essential ribosomal protein (L24). The aim of this project is to grow cells without L24, then turn on the production of L24 (using a bacterial plasmid).
