Meghan Maguire


Meghan Maguire of Nashua, New Hampshire, is a senior biology major interested in dentistry as well as in the conservation of plants and animals. Her interest in oral health, her learning about people with intellectual disabilities, and her desire to experience a foreign culture came together in her summer research in Brisbane, Australia. She hopes the results of her project will help improve oral health education for this marginalized population. Meghan was supported in her grant application and research by Dr. Gene Harkless, her mentor Dr. Joan Hahn, and her foreign mentor Dr. Kate van Dooren. After graduation in May with a bachelor of science in biology, she looks forward to dental school or work in biological conservation.
