Notable Research Projects per Faculty at Brock

1. Dust on Mars by Mariek Schmidt

2) Cell Physiology by Bishoy Seliman, Cassandra Cunningham, and Jeff Stuart

Jeff Stuart and students Faculty: Biology Stuart and his team of researchers studied human cells in their laboratories. Specifically, they focused on the effect that oxygen can have on them. In so doing, they can help learn what exactly goes wrong in the cells when diseases strike them.

3) World War I Heroes by Elizabeth Vlossak

Faculty: History Vlossak's research is rooted in the importance of history and how humans remember where they came from. Her work focused on World War I and what the implications of the hundreds of thousands of people who died in the war are.

5) Backpacks and Your Health by Michael Holmes
