Dominick DiMercurio Undergraduate Researcher UMBC

Researcher of the Week:
Dominick DiMercurio II

Meet Dominick,
He is both a Biological Sciences and Mathematics major. He is also a Honors College scholar who is heavily involved with the Honors College Council. Upon his graduation, he will have served on the executive board of the Biology Council of Majors for 3.5 years. He is also a member of the National Society of Collegiate Scholars and Pi Mu Epsilon. As a senior, I now help underclassmen find ways to become more involved at UMBC.

His research will help biologists obtain a better understanding of mechanisms for cell migration, which may itself lead to insights on migratory pathways for the metastasis of cancer and the occurrence of other developmental defects. Cell migration is a critical and recurrent phenomenon in animal biology; migration is a key feature in wound healing, immune function, and embryo development.
