博士。珍妮弗·施罗德, associate professor of biology and director of academic effectiveness, is incorporating the Performance Learning mission with her teachings at Millikin, both in the classroom and in the lab where her students are working on cancer research.

"Stephen has been working with me for the last year. We're doing a project where's he's studying the effects of the way we use herbicides in agriculture and how they affect oxidative stress levels in the cells," Schroeder said in an interview with the Herald & Review. "That's the way cells are able to cope with different stressors. Cancer cells have a different way of approaching it and essentially try to fight off the stressor and survive longer than a regular cell."

The goal of the research is to figure out how exposure to certain chemicals could increase the risk of cancer. Schroeder says there's a tie-in particularly with high incidence rates of reproductive cancers in rural areas.
