Project: Medicinal Chemistry Collaborations

Bio: Maddie is currently a first year in the Wuest Lab. She received her B.S. from Agnes Scott College in the spring of 2017. During her time at Agnes Scott, she was able to do research at Oak Ridge National Laboratory under Santa Jansone-Popova in the Chemical Separations Group as well as at University of Kansas with Michael Clift. Both experiences gave her a taste of organic chemistry research and inspired her to want to know more. Maddie also enjoys running, hiking, dogs (particularly labs—pun intended), and craft beer.
