Her work with CHANAS provided senior Leah Tully with her project for the course Research Experiences in Nutrition, taught by Dr. Morrell. The project gave her a “huge respect for career researchers,” she said. She found that she enjoyed the blood drawing necessary for her data. “Human research is really interesting,” she observed. In April 2013 she presented her research at the international Experimental Biology Conference in Boston as well as at the UNH Undergraduate Research Conference, where she received an Award of Excellence. A nutrition and wellness major and a member of Phi Sigma Biological Sciences honor society, Leah will graduate in May 2014 with a bachelor of science. She also has two minors: writing and women’s studies. Writing for Inquiry was a good fit, and her mentor encouraged her to do it. After graduation she would like to work for a company dedicated to educating the public about health and wellness. “There is a huge lack of education about what we are putting into our bodies,” she said.
