Congratulations to Megan Laham who was selected as the 2024 Herbert E. Carter Award Recipient.

Megan works in Dr. Gregory Thatcher's lab studying nuclear hormone receptors to develop nonlipogenic ABCA1 inducers. Megan is also the CBC graduate council chair and the outreach chair for PAWS. Through PAWS, she has organized various events with the Tucson community to share STEM demos with K-12 students.

One event this year that Megan was grateful to be a part of was the visit to Baboquivari High School on the Tohono O'odham reservation this past fall. Megan says her passion for outreach started at her undergraduate college which encouraged students to volunteer with the local community as well as nationally through various service trips.
