Meet a Student
Winthrop’s science programs have grown tremendously in the past 15 years in facilities, faculty achievements and student research.
This month, more accolades came Winthrop’s way as chemistry faculty members Takita Sumter and Robin Lammi received two national grants. The university will have to provide some of its own money in order to bring in the more than $500,000 in federal grant money.
Undergraduate students will work in the labs to help Sumter investigate what transforms normal cells into cancer cells. A National Institutes of Health grant of nearly $250,000 will support their efforts.
In another lab, Lammi and her students will use a National Science Foundation grant of more than $250,000 to investigate the underlying causes of Alzheimer’s.
To ensure their work continues as state funds decline, make a gift in support of science research at Winthrop. Gifts will further bolster and support the research and learning happening every day in labs and classrooms at Winthrop University.
