Accelerated B.S./Ph.D. Program: Current Students
JP Trasatti
Chemistry

Coming to Rensselaer I brought with me a passion for science, specifically related to the field of medicinal chemistry. The School of Science Accelerated BS/PhD Program allowed me to dive into research and explore my interests in the field of chemistry—permitting me to work under a variety of researchers, exploring an array of topics.

I am co-advised by both Professor Pankaj Karande and Professor Robert Linhardt. My current research examines the biochemical interactions of the blood-brain barrier. Understanding of such interactions has application in the field of drug delivery to the brain, specifically for treatment of diseases like Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, and brain cancers. This material is based upon work supported by the National Science Foundation via the Graduate Research Fellowship Program.

I have developed myself outside of my research at Rensselaer also, as President of Phalanx, Rensselear's Senior Leadership Society; a member of Greek Life as a brother of Lambda Chi Alpha Fraternity; serving as Vice President of Recruitment for the Interfraternity Council; working on the campus newspaper in a senior managing role; and as a member of Red & White Alumni organization. I also enjoy photography and running in my free time.
