Student research explores possible role for henna in cancer treatment

Posted on July 31, 2017

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. — A collaborative research project between Minnesota State University Moorhead sophomore Mark Lueders and Samford University professor emeritus Mike Howell adds to compelling evidence that a chemical produced by the henna plant might be useful in treating cancer and offers insight into appropriate dosage.

Lueders is one of twelve students from undergraduate institutions across the U.S. at Samford this summer taking part in a prestigious Research Experience for Undergraduate (REU) program funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and hosted by the university’s Department of Biological and Environmental Sciences. The students are investigating questions in local ecology, microbiology, genetics, enzymology, cell culture, organic molecule synthesis and thin film macromolecules. Each student is developing specialized and marketable skills while learning to communicate about science research.
