Four students to compete in the 2024 Regeneron International Science Fair

The Science Research and Engineering Program held its 26th annual Poster Session where approximately 100 SREP Fellows showcased their research ranging from independent background literature reviews to four-year-long research projects. SREP students have worked with over 400 researchers since 1998 and over 600 students have participated in the program. 

SREP Fellows won a number of special awards in recognition of their graduate-level research. The top four projects from the Poster Session were selected as finalists to attend the Regeneron International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) in May. The Regeneron ISEF finalists are:

  • Ashley Chu '25: Development of Pre-clinical Assays for Quality Control of Cancer Imaging Agents (Dr. Brady-Kalnay, CWRU)
  • Arushi Dugar '25: Neural Spike Sorting in the Somatosensory Cortex (Dr. Graczyk, CWRU)

  • Elainie Theodorou '25: Association Between Trigeminal Neuralgia and Degenerative Cervical Myelopathy: A Cross-Sectional Propensity Matched Study using United States Data (Dr. Trager, UH)

  • Julia Zhu '24: MFN2, A Potential Therapeutic Target for Alzheimer's Disease (Dr. Wang, CWRU)

ISEF is the largest pre-college science event in the nation and more than 1800 student finalists from local and regional fairs from roughly 75 countries and territories arrive to compete for scholarships, tuition grants, internships, and scientific field trips.
