Daniel W. Youngstrom, a graduate of Marlborough High School and former Massachusetts State High School Science Fair exhibitor, has achieved a rare honor: As a grad student at Virginia Tech, Dan has received a Fulbright fellowship.
A Ph.D. candidate in biomedical and veterinary science at the Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine, Dan helps develop stem cell treatments for horses. Later this month, his Fulbright fellowship will take him to Riga, Latvia to pursue his work at the Cell Transplantation Center. “The Cell Transplantation Center is similarly developing cell-based therapies to treat a variety of conditions in humans,” he said. I am excited to apply my experience in veterinary research to its work, and the collaboration should prove to be mutually beneficial.”
Dan was involved in the Marlborough High School Science Fair in 2004 and 2005. He took his 2005 project to the Worcester Regional Science and Engineering Fair and then all the way the Massachusetts State Science and Engineering Fair. Yet another science fair success story!
