Senior Biology major Danielle Spitzer, who has worked in the Scott Williams lab since she arrived at UNC and is now doing her Senior Honors Thesis in his lab, was just notified that she has received a prestigious NSF Fellowship. Danielle will be attending the University of California, Berkeley next year for graduate school and is interested in studying developmental and cell biology. This summer, Danielle will be working at the NIH in the inaugural year of the Amgen-NIH Science Education and Outreach Fellowship program. Last summer Danielle also received a highly competitive Amgen Scholar award to study “amitosis” in Drosophila intestinal stem cells at Columbia University with Dr. Ben Holstein.
