MSHS Grad Shares her UW Bioengineering PhD Research

  • Murial Ross, a former AP Biology student who graduated from Mount Si in 2017, recently returned to that class to share research she’s doing in her Bioengineering PhD program at the University of Washington. Ross is conducting research on light degradable coiled hydrogels and recombinant proteins. She presented this work and discussed her college and career pathway with current students in Andrew Rapin’s AP Biology class.

    “Our students really appreciated the Q & A opportunity to learn more about this research and insights Murial had for those interested in STEM fields, including recommendations for applying to competitive university programs,” explained Mr. Rapin. “It is so awesome to see learning and teaching come full circle!”
