Two female lab workers in a zebrafish lab.UW School of Pharmacy Student Accepted Into Exclusive Biomedical Sciences Summer Program

A University of Wyoming biomedical sciences Ph.D. candidate has been accepted into the Marine Biological Laboratory summer program in neuroscience, excellence and success (SPINES), located in Woods Hole, Mass.

Whitney Walker, of Bethel, Alaska, is among 15-20 graduate and postdoctoral students selected nationally each summer for the exclusive program dedicated to creating and sustaining an outstanding and diverse academic workforce in neuroscience.

The goal of SPINES is to increase diversity in underrepresented ethnicities in neuroscience teaching and research careers.

Walker says she became interested in biomedical sciences at her high school, Mount Edgecumbe, located in Sitka, Alaska, where she was offered an advanced science course in research. That class led to her acceptance in a program offered through the University of Alaska called the Rural Alaska Honors Institute, which gave Walker the opportunity to participate in university-level research as a sophomore.
