Undergraduate researchers at West Virginia University will spend the next year pursuing projects in enzymes and fungi— research that could ultimately help people with chronic diseases and develop new pharmaceuticals.
Emily Calandrelli, a West Virginia University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology engineer turned Emmy-nominated science TV host, met with women and non-binary students on WVU’s downtown campus to discuss the Brooke Owens Fellowship and present an inspirational testimonial for students to pursue STEM-related careers on Monday, Sept. 13.
From meeting in the military and falling in love, to going back to school together at West Virginia University after serving over two decades in the United States Navy, Stacy and Blane Fike have always been there for each other.
While at WVU, Foundation scholar Miriam Demasi was drawn to the idea of intersecting
technology and humanity. As a computer and electrical engineering major, she was
a sister in Alpha Omega Epsilon, a professional sorority for women in engineering
and technical sciences.
Every idea starts with imagination. For seven aspiring
West Virginia University collegiate entrepreneurs across four teams, their imagination sparked innovative
ideas that led them to participate in the March IDEA Challenge, held virtually
March 31. The event was hosted by the West Virginia University LaunchLab.
