Kacey Egusa '18

This fellowship allowed me to investigate my passion for scientific research and showed me what it takes to be an innovative, skilled and professional researcher.

Kacey Egusa is a senior from Auburn, CA, pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology and a minor in Physics. Upon graduation, she hopes to be accepted into a PharmD/PhD program. Her professional goal is to earn a PharmD/PhD, a dual doctoral degree for a pharmacist–scientist that will include working in clinical medicine and medical research.

Of her experience, Kacey says, “This opportunity meant a great deal to my undergraduate career. During this summer research fellowship, I learned that I could approach a problem that may arise during an experiment and reconsider and evaluate ideas that can improve my technique.”
