This week’s chemistry seminar was on the topic of Investigating the Structure and Function of Proteases. The seminar was presented by Dr. Peter Lyons. Dr. Peter Lyons is an associate professor in the Department of Biology here at Andrews University. Through years of study and hard work he along with a battery of undergraduate students and other faculty have uncovered a wealth of information about the function of proteases which aid in the conversion of food to fuels our bodies can use.
