South Plainfield Resident Presents Senior Honors Thesis at FDU

MADISON — Nicole Aiello, a resident of South Plainfield, and a senior majoring in Biological and Allied Health Science on Fairleigh Dickinson’s University’s College at Florham in Madison, presented her senior honors thesis, “Characterizing the Anaphase Promoting Complex Protein Interactions and the Localization of APC5P, CDC23P and CDC20P in Budding Yeast” on April 28.

The senior thesis is part of the University Honors Program. Each student inducted into this program must demonstrate academic competency, intellectual curiosity and personal maturity.


The University Honors Program offers gifted and motivated students the opportunity to pursue a course of study combining a broad liberal education with guided study in a major field.

Students are able to pursue specialized internships, to take advantage of the cultural and educational resources of New York City and New Jersey, and to undertake independent research and to prepare a senior honors thesis. Guided by a faculty mentor, the students focus on their honors thesis during their senior year and present their theses in April.
