Northwest Nazarene University associate professor Jennifer Chase was awarded a grant from the M. J. Murdock charitable trust in order to conduct research on alcohol and retinol, a form of vitamin A. Dr. Chase will focus her research on retinol metabolism and its effects on such diseases at fetal alcohol syndrome and various cancers.

The two-year $40,500 grant will also allow Dr. Chase to hire several NNU students to assist her and receive invaluable experience working in a research lab. Her research model could provide groundbreaking information on how vitamin A and alcohol work together.
