Madeline Howell, an undergraduate researcher in Barbara Smith’s lab, earns 2020 School of Molecular Sciences Dean’s Medal

Howell’s research in the Smith lab focused on developing novel optical feedback systems for navigating patch-clamp electrodes inside the living brain. Patch-clamp electrophysiology is the highest-resolution technique currently available for understanding neuronal dynamics. She also collaborated on a project on detecting circulating ovarian tumor cells, which resulted in a publication in ACS Biomaterials Science and Engineering.
