Two USD Students to Present Research Findings at State Capitol
Sydney Strait, a biology major and business administration minor from Watertown, South Dakota, will present findings on the effect of cyclosporine and alcohol consumption. Alex Hanson, a medical biology major and interdisciplinary sciences minor from Sioux Falls, South Dakota, will present research findings on the effects of chronic pain inhibitors.
“I chose to work on this project because of what the potential results of our research could mean for people with alcohol use disorders,” said Strait. ”There are over 17 million Americans affected by alcohol use disorders and right now, we are not able to offer very many effective therapies for this disease and other addictive diseases.”
Strait plans to pursue a Master’s degree in genetic counseling while Hanson plans to pursue a medical degree.
Two students each from USD and SDSU and one each from SDSMT, BHSU, DSU, NSU and Augustana will present findings to the South Dakota legislature.
