Tim Marquis

Tim Marquis, who graduated in 2015 with his bachelor’s degree in biomedical science, discovered a novel pituitary cell type of the lamprey as an undergraduate at UNH while working in the lab of Dr. Stacia Sower, a researcher with the NH Agricultural Experiment Station and professor emeritus of biochemistry and molecular biology. Tim received three grants from the Hamel Center for Undergraduate Research:

Topic: Training and Learning Research in Molecular, Biochemical and Neuroendocrinological Studies of Brain and Pituitary Hormones of Fish
 
Undergraduate Research Award (URA) , Fall 2012, as part of an undergraduate research team with Mary Hayes
Topic: A Comparative Study of Snap-Frozen vs. RNAlater® Tissue Preservation by In-situ Hybridization Characterization of Lamprey Gonadotropin-Releasing Hormone Receptors I, II, & III in the Brain and Pituitary of the Sea Lamprey, Petromyzon marinus
 
Undergraduate Research Award (URA), Fall 2013
