Check out some of the awesome things our members have been up to! Olivia Sabatino'19 was named the Centennial Conference Offensive Player of the Week for women's soccer for the week ending September 4th. Brynne Brouse'18, a forward on the women's basketball team, spent her summer participating in a cancer research internship at the University of California, San Francisco.
"This summer, I had the exciting opportunity to do cancer research with Washington College alumna Dr. Terumi Kohwi-Shigematsu at the University of California, San Francisco. While at her lab, I researched SATB1 expression levels in head and neck cancers and their relationship to aggressive metastatic cancer. I became well-trained in a number of molecular and biochemical research procedures, including western blotting, qRT-PCR, RNA purification, immunofluorescence staining, tissue culture, and ChIP-seq. This opportunity was extremely rewarding, because I grew in multiple ways that allowed me to become more confident in myself and my abilities." Keep up the great work guys! #spotlightsunday #habifam #WAChabitat #habitatforhumanity
