Four students to compete in the Regeneron International Science Fair

  • Student News

The Science Research and Engineering Program held its 24th annual Poster Session where approximately 100 SREP Fellows showcased their research ranging from independent background literature reviews to four-year-long research projects. 

The topics covered everything from existential isolation to drug delivery via nanoparticles and benzoxazine synthesis to virtual NASA rover missions. SREP students have worked with over 400 researchers since 1998 and over 600 students have participated in the program. 

SREP Fellows won a number of special awards in recognition of their graduate-level research. The top four projects from the Poster Session were selected as finalists to attend the Regeneron International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) in May. The Regeneron ISEF finalists are:

  • Katie Greppin '22: Epidemiology of Pineoblastoma in the United States, 2000-2017 (Barnholtz-Sloan Lab)
  • Neha Sangani '24: Procoagulant Synthetic Platelets to Restore Hemostatic Clot Quality in Platelet Dysfunction Settings (Sen Gupta Lab)

  • Avery Simon '22: Creating an Autonomous Path Navigator to Generate Interest in Machine Learning Among Children (Schilling Lab)

  • Julia Zhu '24: C19orf12 Ablation Causes Mitochondrial Dysfunction and Ferroptosis in MPAN (Zhang Lab)

ISEF is the largest pre-college science event in the nation and more than 1800 student finalists from local and regional fairs from roughly 75 countries and territories arrive to compete for scholarships, tuition grants, internships, and scientific field trips.
