Grace Dougherty, '14, Studies at Georgia Health Sciences University
I had a very enriching summer in Augusta, Georgia as a part of the Student Training and Research (STAR) program at Georgia Health Sciences University. There, I worked in a biochemistry and molecular biology lab doing basic science bench work under my mentor, Michael Duncan, Ph.D.
The program was nine weeks and I was able to gather enough data to make a poster that I presented at the end of the program. My research looked at the role of recruited macrophage cells in the liver tumor microenvironment in hepatocellular carcinoma.
I was awarded the Outstanding STAR Student Award out of 24 students for my work and presentation.
I really enjoyed my time in Augusta and now have much more interest in research.
