Sophomore Chemistry major Zohra Sattar of West Chicago looks to make changes in pharmaceuticals. She has a cousin with epilepsy and saw firsthand how certain drugs meant to help ended up dulling his personality. "This needs to be changed," Sattar said. "I feel we need to be developing more medicines that enable a person to continue living life while undergoing treatment."
