Jennifer Drohan a past pupil of Our Lady of Mercy Secondary School, Waterford. Jennifer claimed second place in the Source BioScience “Excellence in Undergraduate Biology Research” Awards 2019, which took place on 22 May 2019 in WIT.
Jennifer is a final year student studying BSc Applied Biology (now BSc in Molecular Biology and Biopharmaceutical Science).
The awards, kindly sponsored by Source BioSience, honoured the best project presentations from final year-students in the Level 7 BSc in Applied Biology programme (BSc in Molecular Biology and Biopharmaceutical Science). John Calvo from Source BioScience presented Jennifer with her award.
"As part of our level 7 programme in Applied Biology, we carry out a research project which can be on a range of interesting and current research topics. My project was the 'Optimisation of Western Blot Transfer and Detection'. Each student had to present their work through a presentation and then students were nominated for this award.
I was delighted to have been chosen for this award as it is a great achievement and also a great addition to my CV. "
Jennifer says her dream for the future is: "to continue on into the level 8 add-on in Molecular Biology and Biopharmaceutical Science here in WIT. I would also love to progress into the research field once I've completed my undergraduate degree"
