Outstanding Student Research

Four students from the Louisiana Scholars’ College at Northwestern State University – Katie Wakefield, Glendalyn Boothe, Shelby Riedel and Caleb Killer – were co-authors on a research paper with Dr. Massimo D. Bezoari, Richard Lounsbery Professor of Chemistry. The paper was entitled “Anticancer Proteasome Inhibition by Cylindrocyclophanes Using Computational Chemistry” and was published in September (2018) in the peer-reviewed Journal of Undergraduate Chemistry Research. Glendalyn Boothe and Shelby Riedel are currently attending the Scholars’ College; Katie Wakefield graduated in 2018 and is preparing to apply to a physician’s assistant program; Caleb Killer is currently attending UT Houston Dental School.
