Research Fellow Wins 1st Place Prize

Jocelyn Garcia was selected for and won the first place prize for Undergraduate Research In Quantitative Biology at the Quantitative Approaches in Biology conference at Northwestern. She won the first place prize of $1,000 for her work on the Quantitative Analysis of Notch Signaling-Mediated Olfactory Neurogenesis.

Many high-achieving undergraduates traveled across the country to present their research and to be considered for one of three prizes; first prize of $1000, second prize of $750, and third prize of $500. They were chosen as finalists based on the strengths of their applications and their recommendation letter, which demonstrated outstanding undergraduate research in quantitative biology.
