At Goucher, Goudy studied biochemistry and molecular biology and is currently a second-year graduate student in the department of biochemistry and biophysics at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
The NSF fellowship supports outstanding full-time research-based graduate students in STEM studies. As part of the award, Goudy will receive three years of support for her graduate education.
Goudy’s research focuses on developing a new tumor-targeted cancer treatment that strengthens the body’s natural immune system. “If it is successful, this method will create safer cancer therapeutics with limited patient side effects,” she says.
According to the National Science Foundation (NSF), “the GRFP is a critical program in NSF’s overall strategy in developing the globally-engaged workforce necessary to ensure the Nation’s leadership in advancing science and engineering research and innovation.”
