Meghan Montoya, of Los Alamos, and a junior at the College of William and Mary, is one of 44 undergraduate students accepted into the 2013 Harvard Stem Cell Institute Internship Program, which provides participants with a challenging summer research experience in a cutting-edge stem cell science laboratory.
Montoya was connected to the HSCI through the Howard Hughes Medical Institute Exceptional Research Opportunities Program.
She is spending 10 weeks in the Joslin Diabetes Center. Her project is to identify factors produced by fibroadipogeneic precursors — cells that mature into connective tissue or fat cells — that regulate stem cell differentiation into skeletal muscle.
