ISR Student Work Published
Class of 2022 graduate and Independent Scientific Research (ISR) student Mythili Kartik recently had her work published on the Wiley Online Library. The article, "Lipid Membrane-Based Antigen Presentation to B Cells Using a Fully Synthetic Ex Vivo Germinal Center Model," explores Kartik's research examining the effects of a lipid membrane on the activation of a B cell. Kartik found that when a B cell is activated, it elicits an immune response through the production of antibodies. Therefore, more efficient B cell activation correlates to a stronger immune response.
ISR is a class usually taken by seniors who have spent the summer between their junior and senior years performing authentic laboratory research work alongside a faculty research advisor, a mentor at Woodward, and the ISR teacher.
