Stephanie Wang is a rising junior majoring in biology. In professor Kang Shen’s lab, she is working with Caenorhabditis elegans and is using genetic and molecular techniques to characterize the molecular mechanism of microtubule polarity in the dendrites of ciliated neurons. After graduation, she plans on attending medical school to become a pediatrician. In her free time, she enjoys playing the piano and singing to the radio.

Poster presented at the Stanford Bio-X Interdisciplinary Initiatives Symposium on August 26, 2013:
