"The scholarship allowed me to attend scientific meetings which I wouldn't have been able to otherwise. Secondly, the prestige within the university for receiving the award was overwhelming."
Logan Ahlstrom - UA Lawson Scholar
Logan received his B.S. in Biochemistry and a B.A. in Spanish Language and Literature from the University of the Pacific. His research uses novel biophysical computational techniques to expand our knowledge of proteins by setting in motion biological molecules. The goal of his work is to decipher how well static images of proteins represent their dynamic physiological state.
