Emily Pratt


Emily Pratt, from Beverly, Massachusetts, will graduate in May 2023. A notable STEM individual at the University of New Hampshire, she is majoring in biochemistry, molecular, and cellular biology. Emily is part of the University Honors Program and plans to join Phi Sigma Biological Sciences Honor Society this semester. She performed research on breast and ovarian cancer this past summer through the Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) program recommended by her advisor. Emily discovered that the interdisciplinary value of her field is crucial to being successful in research projects. She enjoys doing independent lab work and analyzing data in order to make decisions about next steps in the process. Ever ambitious, she will continue this line of cancer research as part of her honors thesis next year and also wishes to participate in drug discovery research. Following graduation, Emily is determined to earn a master’s degree in biochemistry and after that, a PhD in pharmacology. She defines her recent research experience as what reinforced her original decision to study in this field. Her passion for writing in general and for Inquiry both prove to her how writing will play a great role in her research career.
