Congratulations to undergraduate student Edward Ende for being selected as a recipient of the Minerva Award. The Minerva, found on the University seal, is the Roman symbol of knowledge and creativity, and it is this spirit that the College Council hopes to promote with the Minerva Award. Minerva Awards will be awarded in order to fund scholarly projects that will be conducted by College students during the summer.
Funding comes with a generous stipend and presentation of the project. Edward will be working in the McConnell lab on stem cell-derived neurons to enhance muscle transplantation.
