Molly Drosen, Chemistry Major, Researching Cause of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Researching the cause of chronic fatigue syndrome has been of interest to undergraduate biochemistry major Molly Drosen. Molly, an undergraduate researcher with Dr. Avik Roy of Simmaron, has been investigating a gene (ATG13) as a likely cause. She has been testing lab mice who have been bred without the ATG13 gene to see if they would show fatigue after exercise. Molly will be a contributor on a paper that will detail findings on the ATG13 gene. In Focus Article.
