Through Research, Chemistry Professor Instills Students' Passion for Answers

To Joseph Provost, associate chair and professor of chemistry and biochemistry, research is about more than gaining new knowledge. Participating in research gives students confidence in themselves as scientists, not just students of science.

Provost's own research deals with the developmental stages of cancer cells, and how to stop them from hijacking normal proteins and genes so that they cannot survive past the early stages.
