Jane Pearce, a Junior Biology major, recently won first place and $1,500 in the 13th Annual American Association for Cancer Research Undergraduate Student Caucus and Poster Competition. This international meeting was held in Chicago and was attended by 22,000 cancer researchers. As the First Place Winner of the “Margaret Foti Foundation Undergraduate Prizes for Cancer Research,” Jane’s poster was judged based on her abstract, the research content of the poster, and on her ability to effectively answer questions about her work during the poster presentation.
