USP Profile

Frank Zydel
2009 Pharmacogonosy, PhD

USciences enjoys a rich history. Its pharmacognosy program has a first-rate reputation. To Frank Zydel, USciences seemed like the natural choice. Once on campus, the doctoral candidate went to work cultivating his research interest—anticancer drug compounds derived from cereal grains. Zydel cites accessible faculty members and an industry network as additional benefits, especially when it comes to project collaboration. “USciences’ professional connections to other institutions, such as the USDA-ERRC, has helped me team up on research,” he said. “The program overall lived up to its tradition. It has given me a broad foundation I can build upon.”
