Ellen graduates from UK
Congrats to Ellen Granata, who graduated today from the University of Kentucky with a degree in information communication and technology. Ellen worked in the lab for a few summers as a high school student, and even came back over breaks to work on her project. We're about to submit the manuscript on insect blood that she helped with, and she'll be a co-author. (Not bad for a high school student!) Ellen is now working on a master's degree in cybersecurity from Utica College. G
