Congratulations to Junior Danny Bui who won the 2019 Pittsburgh Regional Brain Bee on February 16 at the University of Pittsburgh Center for Neuroscience. Danny will represent our region at the USA Brain Bee Championship on April 12-14 at Penn State College of Medicine in Hershey, PA.
The Brain Bee is a contest for high school students on their knowledge of the brain.
Sophomore student Ava Duchin earned 5th place. The event was organized by Dr. Zachary Wills and Dr. Rob Turner from the Department of Neurobiology at UPMC.
The hosts gave the students a tour of some research labs, and met several undergraduate and PhD students who talked about their research interests.
