Honors Projects: 2002-2003

The following seniors were awarded Honors in Biochemistry at Commencement in May, 2003. This list is provided, in part, as a means of offering examples of the research areas in which honors projects may be pursued at Bowdoin. This, of course, is not an exhaustive list of research choices that are possible on this campus.
