Written By: Sam Million-Weaver

Margaret Snyder, a fourth-year undergraduate in chemical and biological engineering, won a UW-Madison Hilldale Undergraduate/Faculty Research Fellowship for the 2019-2020 academic year to support her studies on different cell types within the blood-brain barrier, under the mentorship of Howard Curler Distinguished Professor Eric Shusta. The award supports undergraduates and their faculty advisors for collaborative projects with substantial intellectual contributions from student researchers. Snyder received a $3,000 unrestricted stipend and $1,000 went to Shusta to offset research costs associated with the project.
