A $35,000 Cottrell College science award from Research Corporation of Tucson has been awarded to Dr. Carol A. Rouzer, assistant professor of chemistry at Western Maryland College, for a two-year research program on a potential series of anti-cancer compounds.
The program will involve the study of 1,3-dialkyl-3-acyltriazenes, substances that react with human DNA. Dr. Rouzer, principal investigator for the project, said the research will involve in-vitro biochemical experiments with the substance to determine how it is metabolized.
The Cottrell award, one of only 100 or so received by educators across the nation this year, will be used to purchase equipment for Dr. Rouzer's research team and to provide a stipend to two undergraduate assistants and Dr. Rouzer. Its renewal at the end of next year will depend on the results of the research. The $35,000 award is among the highest given by the corporation.
Dr. Rouzer, who joined the Western Maryland faculty in 1989, earned her bachelor's degree from WMC in 1976. She later received her Ph.D. from Rockefeller University and an M.D. from
Cornell University Medical College.
