Meet Emily Davis

Hello! My name is Emily Davis (she/her), and I am a senior majoring in MCB Honors. I am also an LAS James Scholar and would be happy to answer any questions or give advice about the point system. My long-term goal is to do research. That is why I am planning to apply to PhD programs, and I've been doing undergraduate research for the last two years. My lab is in the Food Science and Human Nutrition department, where we primarily work with beans to study the different bioactive proteins and how those proteins affect the health of different kinds of cells, such as through the level of cholesterol, inflammation, lipogenesis, and effects on cancer. I'm not attending many registered student organizations (RSOs) right now, but I have been to a lot of general meetings, so I'm very familiar with what campus has to offer! I'm currently finishing my advanced MCB classes, and while that is a ways off for many of you, I'd be happy to discuss my experiences. With completion of these classes, I will be doing the cell and developmental biology certificate. I also enjoy singing, cooking, and playing video games! If you have any questions, I am always happy to help, and if I can't answer them, I will do my best to direct you to someone who can!
