Drs. Cuevas, Sheller and Todd work together studying the properties that adhere cancer cells together.  They recently had the opportunity to present their results at two national meetings.

Research collaborations between three faculty in the Department of Biology recently yielded two presentations at national and international meetings.  The Todd/Cuevas/Sheller Research Collaboration Group continues to conduct cancer research with undergraduates - three of which co-authored (Noah Bierwith, Rachel DeLong and Heather Petty) this recent work.
