Chemistry major earns Beckman Scholar award

“KyungMin Yoo, a rising junior who is majoring in chemistry, has been selected as Wake Forest’s fifth Beckman Scholar.

As part of the Beckman Scholars Program, Yoo will spend two summers working on research related to wound-healing with chemistry professor Mark Welker. She has been working in Welker’s lab for a year.

“Receiving the Beckman award will allow me to receive funding for the work I am doing now as well as to travel to symposiums and conferences, to continue working with the Welker lab members and to engage in research to lead to a successful career,” Yoo said.”
