Two recent graduates have published a paper with Bernard Fried, professor emeritus of biology, in a peer-reviewed scientific journal.

Yonghyun Kim ’02, who graduated with degrees in biochemistry and chemical engineering in 2002, and Robert LaTerra, who graduated with a degree in biology in 2002, wrote “Emergence in cercariae of Echinostoma caproni and Schistosoma mansoni from Biomphalaria glabrata under different laboratory conditions,” published in Journal of Helminthology.

“This work examined optimal conditions for the release of the free-living larval stage (known as the cercaria) of two medically important trematodes, Echinostoma caproni and Schistosoma mansoni from the medically important snail, Biomphalaria glabrata,” says Fried. “The work was done under defined laboratory conditions…”

Kim, who worked with Fried as an EXCEL Scholar, is pursuing graduate studies at the University of Maryland. LaTerra, who collaborated through an independent study, is studying at Jefferson Medical College.
