Chemistry faculty and students publish article

Professor of Chemistry, David Horgen, Ph.D., and students Davey Cagle (BS Biology '11, M.B.A./M.A. Communication '16) and Kris Karanovich (B.S. Biology major) published an article, "Macrolactone Nuiapolide, Isolated from a Hawaiian Marine Cyanobacterium, Exhibits Anti-Chemotactic Activity" in the journal Marine Drugs.

The article was published with colleagues at Texan A&M University. The research covers the discovery of a new drug-like substance, associated with inhibiting the spread of cancer cells in the body, from marine microorganisms growing in the waters near Niihau.
