Anna Razvi ’21, a rising junior at The Wardlaw+Hartridge School, recently completed a two-week program at Rutgers University’s Waksman Institute. Anna, a Waksman Summer Scholar enrolled in the Waksman Student Scholar’s Program (WSSP) at Rutgers University, did a fantastic job presenting her findings at the Waksman Student Scholar Poster Presentation in July.
Anna and her partner Chris from Union County Technical High School presented their data on an ATP Cassette Transporter Protein they discovered in Duckweed. This protein is involved in protein production in the cell and plays an important role in human diseases like cystic fibrosis. Anna will submit this information as well as another gene she discovered to the National Institute of Biotechnology for publication in their database. Anna will be the Teaching Assistant for the Molecular Research Course offered at W+H in the fall.
