Gregor Leech (Biophysics '22) was awarded a Barry Goldwater Scholarship

In his words: "I would never have earned the Goldwater scholarship if it wasn’t for the encouragement and guidance of my advisor and research mentor, Dr. Rae Robertson-Anderson. Receiving the award validated all the hard work –the long nights, work-filled weekends-- the cliché ‘no pain, no gain’ right? But really, I owe it to all the help and inspiration from my friends, professors and the amazing people I get to work with in the Anderson/McGorty biophysics lab. I’m so grateful to be a part of their lives. Special thanks to Dr. Gloria Lee, Dr. Ryan McGorty, Dr. Greg Severn, Dr. Ted Dezen, Philip Neill, and Dr. Rae Robertson-Anderson".                      He wrote an essay on his involvement in studying active matter bio-materials in our lab
