Congratulations to Shreyam Tripathi for winning the poster category at the 2022 Arkansas Regional Junior Science and Humanities Symposium (JSHS). Mr. Tripathi is a junior at the Arkansas School for Mathematics, Sciences, and the Arts (ASMSA) who has been working in the laboratory of Dr. Robert Eoff at UAMS. At the JSHS, Mr. Tripathi presented a poster entitled “Investigating the role of Rev1 in maintaining accurate DNA replication past G4 containing regions in the leading and lagging strands” detailing experiments he performed in the Eoff lab with guidance from Dr. Amit Ketkar.
The Arkansas Regional JSHS was held at Arkansas Tech University on March 11-12 and is a Tri-Service STEM competition sponsored by the U.S. Army, Navy, and Air Force. The study was supported by a grant from the National Science Foundation (MCB 1903357 to R.L.E.) and is part of an ongoing collaboration between Dr. Eoff and ASMSA students and faculty.
