Student Interns’ Research Wins at Spring Research Festival and County Science Fair

WHK student interns Alexis Adkins and Jacqueline Chung with their mentor Kedar Narayan.

At the annual Spring Research Festival on Fort Detrick, they placed first in the First-in-Development Cell Biology category. At the Frederick County Science and Engineering Fair, they won the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair Award of Excellence in Computer Science and placed second in the Molecular and Cell Biology category.
