Richard Sejour, M.S.

  • Biography

I lived on Long Island, NY my entire life, where I was fortunate to be exposed to educational opportunities that sparked my passion for research. I completed my Undergraduate (2015) and Master’s (2018) studies at Adelphi University. During this time, I conducted research on the role of Sirtuin 4 in modulating metabolic signaling pathways across Drosophila mitochondrial DNA haplotypes. My scientific interests are broad, but I have an affinity for scientific computing and basic research in the following areas: molecular biology, DNA damage repair, cellular damage responses, and epigenetics. On my spare time, I enjoy playing video games, exploring religious/spiritual ideologies, and in general enhancing my comprehension of the physical and social sciences. I am honored to be a member of the Stony Brook community, and I look forward to being mentored by Stony Brook's talented faculty researchers.
