Article 1 Erick Mendoza Intranasal Delivery as Therapeutic Treatment for Ischemic Stroke For her SURF Project, Wen Liu researched whether or not cell death can be suppressed by inhibiting the caspase signaling pathway, which concurrently takes place and may even be an indicator of stroke. Stroke is the third leading cause of death in the United States and the most common cause of neurological death. Stroke can also severely affect or impair speech, movement, and memory. If one could detect precisely when brain cells trigger apoptosis, this process may be inhibited before damage or death can occur. This student’s research directly relates to negative feedback and protein regulation in cell systems. If a cell needs to inhibit the production of a particular protein, this may be accomplished by inhibiting the production or action of any enzyme involved in the process. In addition to regulation, Wen Liu also used indirect immunofluorescence. using goat anti-rat antibodies
