When you talk with Rachel Sabol ’17 about her scholarly work, it’s as if she’s been in bioresearch for years. Words tumble from her mouth as she describes highly scientific topics with ease.
In a sense, she has been working in bioresearch for years — three, to be exact. She entered UNH as a math major but switched to biology before her sophomore year. The move brought her into the genetics lab of assistant professor Matthew MacManes, where she got her feet wet working on ladybug genetics. For the next two years, she worked alongside assistant professor of pharmacology Brian Barth, who studies acute myeloid leukemia.
