Shannon Fortin - UA Eller Scholar

Shannon received a B.S. in Biochemistry at Arizona State University.  Her research focuses on what causes the tumor cell invasion and resistance to chemotherapy that is descriptive of glioblasoma multiforme (GBM), a form of brain tumor.  She is studying the genetic signature of brain tumors and consequent molecular signaling responsible for tumor invasion.

Benjamin Berman - UA Papadopoulos Scholar

Ben received his B.S. in Mathematics from the University of Arizona. His research is on compressed sensing design for medical imaging that allows us to acquire signals much faster by measuring fewer points, while maintaining a very high level of signal quality. For the radiologist and research scientist, this means higher quality images, and more time to access the machine and for the patient, this means more comfort during the procedure and a better diagnosis afterwards.

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.
