Bulletin Visits USC
On November 2015, Esosa Agbonwaneten visited the USC Science and Technology Research (STAR) program, it was not too long ago that Agbonwaneten was a senior in high school at Francisco Bravo Medical Magnet High and was conducting western blots and microscopy on an Alzheimer’s Project (as seen in image below).
Agbonwaneten had the wonderful opportunity to speak with high school seniors participating in the STAR program about her startup journey, and how her experience conducting research in high school had a profound impact in her collegiate experience. Agbonwaneten says “she had an amazing time speaking with the students and it is clear that these students will do well in their college experience”.
