Only 24 undergraduates nationwide were selected to work in laboratories of established APS investigators. Kyeong Ran (Rachel) Jang, a biology major from Louisville who just finished her freshman year, and Audra Stacy, a senior biology major from Elkhorn City, Ky., received $4,000 each to conduct their research over a 10-week period this summer. Each of them also received $1,300 to travel to the APS annual Experimental Biology meeting, a broad-based scientific meeting of five to seven diverse biological scientific societies that are members of the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology. The meeting, held in spring 2014, will allow the students to meet other undergraduate students, graduate students, and researchers in addition to all the scientific presentations they will attend.
