Hannah Ball and Alyssa Peterson have been awarded a 2020 Microscopy Society of America Undergraduate Research Scholarship.
Hannah, a junior, will be studying metabolic defects in ALS with fruit flies using expansion microscopy in the lab of Dr. Daniela Zarnescu. Expansion microscopy allows for higher resolution imaging using conventional microscopes. Alyssa will be studying mosquito eggshell biology with Drs. Brooke Massani and Jun Isoe. Congratulations, Hannah and Alyssa!
