Jordan Manis (pictured) graduated in 2016 with the CPRx award as shown by the tri-color honor cords that he is wearing with his regalia. He completed 12 credit hours of work in the molecular endocrinology lab of Dr. David Hurley in the Dept. of Pharm Science, cloning a large zinc finger transcriptional protein that controls Growth Hormone expression. Based in part on this work, Jordan was selected in a national competition to attend an NIH-sponsored workshop at the Univ. of Ala. Birmingham where he learned how to use metabolomics in his projects. Metabolomics is a state-of-the-art means to determine the concentrations of the substrates and products in pathways in cells and is the focus of large-scale data analysis by pharmaceutical companies for drug development.
