Dominican College is located in the scenic Rockland County area, just 17 miles north of New York City. This convenient suburban location offers easy access to the outstanding cultural and educational resources of New York City. As a Biology major at Dominican College, students have a choice of three distinct academic tracks that prepare them for the science-related career of their choice while receiving the benefits of a broad-based liberal arts education. Our Biology program channels our students' passions for life sciences into a solid foundation for advanced study of the sciences or for a rewarding and fulfilling career in any discipline involving plants, animals, people, or the Earth.

Dominican College of Blauvelt

Associate Professor

Biology

Dr. Bernadette Connors joined the faculty at Dominican College in January 2009. Her research focuses on better understanding proteolytic mechanisms related to defects in nucleotide excision repair, defects that have direct implications on development of certain types of cancer in higher eukaryotes. The importance of this repair mechanism is evidenced by the severe human diseases that result from mutations in its component proteins, such as xeroderma pigmentosum (XP). Using the Saccharomyces cerevisae model system, Dr. Connors aims to dissect the mechanisms that regulate this repair process with regard to protein degradation following ultraviolet irradiation. To date, undergraduates working in her laboratory have identified several novel genetic interactions, and will continue to work to delineate the relationships using standard genetic and biochemical techniques.
