Forensic biology major receives award to travel to national science conference

Lynette Vana, a Junior majoring in Biology with a concentration in Forensic Biology, has received an Undergraduate Travel Award from the Society of Toxicology to attend their 2012 national meeting in San Francisco.  Lynette was one of 36 recipients in the nation, and the second Ashland University student in the past three years to gain this recognition.  This award will cover all of her expenses to attend one of the most significant meetings in the field of toxicology, along with special programming to help undergraduate students develop careers in this diverse science field.

Lynette spent last summer in a research internship at WIL Research Laboratories in Ashland, Ohio, and is currently conducting independent research with biology professor Mason Posner.  She is planning a career in federal law enforcement as a forensic scientist.
