STORIES in Agriculture and Life Sciences



If you visit the Science Bound Web Page at Iowa State University you'll see that under "results," in addition to 56 graduates, the program for recruiting ethnically diverse students in math and science lists a number of masters graduates and "a Ph.D. in biology from Cornell University." That Ph.D. is Charles Stewart Jr. "Science bound was one major thing that opened my eyes to science and the impact it can have on the world," Stewart says. Stewart ('00 agricultural biochemistry) is a research associate at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies in San Diego, Calif. The institute uses molecular biology and genetics, neurosciences and plant biology to understand and develop new treatments for a range of human diseases and improve the quality and quantity of the world's food supply.
