Amanda Brown


“I became a scientist as a result of my high school biology teacher talking about the research he would do if he could return to college and through my research experiences during the summers while in college. These early exposures (it was called the summer affirmative action research program!) gave me the insight, knowledge and confidence to pursue a career in science.”
