Lassiter senior Akahne Philpot participated in the Summer Scholars Research Program at the Winship Cancer Institute at Emory University during summer 2012. This program was established to provide students a unique opportunity for students to experience the interdisciplinary nature and process of biomedical research in a cancer research laboratory. Akahne was paired with scientist Dr. Ahita Corbett, who is actively engaged in research at Emory. She and other participating students also completed reading assignments, attended lectures, and shared their own findings at a formal symposium.
