The award will be used to fund the recipient's travel to a national conference. This year the award was given to Erika G. Bravo `17. 

About Erika:

I am from Woodside, Queens, NY and I graduated from Manhattan Center for Science and Mathematics High School. I came to Ithaca College being a biology major, but became a biochemistry major during my sophomore year because I enjoyed my organic chemistry courses and wanted to do independent research in Mike Haaf’s lab. In addition to being part of the Haaf lab for four semesters now, I also completed a semester of independent research in Maki Inada’s lab. After I graduate from Ithaca College I plan to obtain my Master’s degree in Forensic Science.
