Ashland forensic biology alumna heading to pharmacy school

We just received the good news that Lynette Vana (Forensic Biology '12) has been accepted to the Doctor of Pharmacy program at the University of Cincinnati.  During the past year Lynette has been working as an analytical chemist at Ben Venue Laboratories, a pharmaceutical company near Cleveland.  During the year she decided that she wanted to pursue a degree in pharmacy, and with some guidance from past AU graduates in pharmacy careers selected schools, prepared for her pharmacy entrance exams and will now be starting at Cincinnati in the Fall.

While a student at Ashland University Lynette conducted summer research at WIL Research Laboratories, a pharmaceutical testing firm in the city of Ashland.  She continued this work with a faculty member in the Department of Biology/Toxicology and presented her research at an annual meeting of the Ohio Academy of Sciences.  She was also selected by the Society of Toxicology (SOT) for an undergraduate travel award that paid her way to the annual 2012 SOT meeting in San Francisco.  The picture above was taken during that meeting.
