The SBB Research Group Foundation has named Bryanna Godfrey as its latest STEM scholarship recipient. This $2,500 award empowers students to create value for society by pursuing higher learning, primarily through interdisciplinary combinations of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM).
Bryanna is a senior studying Human Biology at Stanford University. Her dedication to change the lives of those disproportionately affected by cancer began in 2018, when her mother was diagnosed with triple-negative breast cancer. In the summer of 2020, Bryanna participated in a research fellowship through the Stanford Bio-X institute. During this time, she conducted research and experiments critical to developing new immunotherapies against triple-negative breast cancer.
"Bryanna's research is especially inspiring because it is rooted in her deeply moving personal story," said Matt Aven, co-founder and board member of the Foundation. "We are proud to recognize Bryanna's efforts to support individuals like her mother with STEM-fueled innovation."
