The President’s Undergraduate Research Award (PURA) is an award that funds student salaries for conducting undergraduate research with Georgia Tech faculty and assists in travel expenses related to professional conferences at which students present their research. Our own Brandon White received the PURA salary fellowship for Spring of 2020. Brandon joined the lab in Spring of 2019 as a G93A Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) curator and apprenticed with the Chronic Myeloid Leukemia (CML) team. In Summer 2019, he became a full CML team member while continuing G93A curation and helping with the CML Meta-Analysis project. In Fall of 2019, he worked on QC for the ALS and CML teams before beginning to lay the groundwork for his new Acute Leukemia (AL) project and submitting his PURA application.
