Paul Robeson Centennial Scholars

Supriya Sinha
Major: Molecular Biology & Biochemistry and French
Hometown: Iselin, NJ
Favorite Rutgers Moment: I've always loved Rutgers Day but the best part of it is the Fromage Frenzy event that we run at the French department!
Dream/Goal: No matter what I end up doing, I want to keep learning for the rest of my life.
What does it mean to be a Scholar?: Doing a thesis in general is an incredibly valuable and rewarding experience. You've challenged yourself to go beyond the classroom and use those critical thinking skills that you've accrued over the years. All of us have put our blood, sweat and tears into our theses. To be honored in the name of another scholar on top of all that is very gratifying.
Thesis Title: Exploring the role of the N-terminus of SBP2 in SBP2 stability and selenoprotein production
Thesis Department: Molecular Biology & Biochemistry

The designation Paul Robeson Scholar is conferred upon School of Arts and Sciences students who have successfully defended a departmental or interdisciplinary senior thesis, as Paul Robeson himself did in 1919. An extraordinary student and Class of 1919 Valedictorian, Paul Robeson went on to become one of Rutgers University’s most distinguished alumni—as a renowned scholar, orator, performer, and human rights advocate. In honor of his legacy and achievements in the face of adversity, the School is proud to honor him each year as these Rutgers graduates follow in his footsteps.
