Former Pathology Intern Thanks NIEHS for Research Opportunity
Lyn Miller Wancket, a recent graduate of the University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine, was featured in the June edition of the Newsletter for the American College of Veterinary Pathologists (ACVP). Wancket spent six-weeks at NIEHS during her final year of veterinary school. In a brief story, Wacket described her experiences at NIEHS and the opportunity she had to use in vivo magnetic resonance microscopy to detect and monitor the growth of diethyl-nitrosamine-induced liver tumors in mice. During her internship, she worked with Bob Maronpot in the Laboratory of Experimental Pathology. She thanked both NIEHS and the ACVP for supporting her efforts and said "my time in North Carolina was by far my favorite senior year rotation."
In June, Wancket entered Ohio State University to pursue a graduate degree and to begin a residency program in anatomical pathology. To read the entire story, click the link below and scroll down to page 13.
