Maria Núñez Hernandez, an junior undergraduate Biochemistry major studying in the Shea Laboratory, was recently featured in an IowaNow article on the Iowa Biosciences Academy encouraging underrepresented students to attend graduate school.

Last spring, Maria was awarded a 2015 Rex Montgomery Scholarship in the Department of Biochemistry for her outstanding academic record and commitment to research. Maria also presented her research in a poster at the 29th Annual Gibbs Conference on Biothermodynamics and at the Annual Biomedical Research Conference for Minority Students in Seattle this past fall.
