Erik Bergstrom, an undergraduate students in biological sciences, are hoping to find therapeutic strategies to counteract age-related diseases by studying the effect of different lifespans and varying reproductive rates of roundworms in both the laboratory and through simulation. This will help them understand how aging occurs in various animal populations, which could one day help with developing treatments for age-related diseases and conditions. The collaborative project is advised by Dr. Andrea Scharf, anassistant professor of biological sciences at S&T. Michael Pierce/Missouri S&T

The University of Missouri Board of Curators unanimously voted today (Nov. 16) to approve two new Ph.D. programs at Missouri University of Science and Technology. The new programs in bioengineering and biological sciences support S&T’s continued growth in education and research related to health care and related fields.
