Congratulations to Brianna Disanza, a former Human Biology major who graduated this Spring.  She has been awarded the 2017 Exceptional Summer Student Award for her internship at the National Institute of Neurological Disorder and Stroke (NINDS) and the National Institute of Health (NIH).  Her poster, The Critical Role of Human Endogenous Retrovirus (HERVs) in Atypical Teratoid/Rhabdoid Neurodevelopment Tumors (ATRTs), impressed several judges with the quality of her research and presentation.
