Congratulations, Reagan Hagewood!

I wanted to stop by and update you all about a former student who recently presented at the 2022 ABRCMS (Annual Biomedical Research Conference for Minoritized Scientists) in Anaheim, California.

Reagan worked in the Rollins Smith Lab in the summer of 2022 as part of the Aspirnaut Program.  Her research examined the dynamics of Bd and Bsal co-infection in an in vitro system.  Reagan has excellent lab skills, she is highly motivated, and she possesses a great deal of passion for science.  She presented her work at ABCRMS last week (November 9-12), and her presentation WON IN HER DISCIPLINE!  We are so proud of her and delighted to hear this!  Actually, this comes as no surprise; Reagan has a lot of talent and a very bright future ahead of her.  The judges even noted that Reagan’s “love for research radiated as she presented.” 

Again, congratulations, Reagan, for this well-deserved honor!
