Imagine you have an exciting new idea for a classroom curriculum, but maybe you aren’t a teacher, and perhaps that curriculum doesn’t exist yet. For Ashley Rice '20 and Alyssa Devlin '19, two Honors students at UMass Amherst, this is exactly what they set out to do starting in the spring of 2019 while participating in a semester-long internship at Brigham & Women’s Hospital in Boston, Mass.
In December of 2019, four Honors students received the Pfizer Award from the Society of Toxicology (SOT) recognizing their outstanding research achievements in the field.
The Rising Research Award recognizes students whose research stands out as being ambitious, creative, and having a positive impact on the greater community.
—This time two years ago, I made one of my favorite decisions of my college experience: to study abroad. For five months during the fall of 2018, I lived and studied in Southeast Asia, specifically Chiang Mai, Thailand.
