Ashley Spann, selected as a United Negro College Fund-Merck Undergraduate Fellow this summer, sends this update regarding her research in Philadelphia:

"Ultimately, my main objective is to take a multicomponent therapeutic approach of genomic screening using the Merck compound library to identify possible drug combinations that work synergistically to promote the desired phenotypic effect.  All in all, I'm very excited and can't wait to come back in the fall to share with all of you my experiences here in Philadelphia."

 

The world is better because of Ashley Spann's mind.
