LARSON (She/Her)

Lara is a third-year undergrad in biosystems engineering in the biomedical engineering pathway at the University of Kentucky. Previously, Lara has completed an internship as a process development engineer at Pfizer as well as a development engineering co-op in the Ethicon branch of Johnson + Johnson. Lara has long had a passion for autoimmune disease research, specifically with Systemic Lupus Erythematosus work. During Lara’s time at Pfizer, she connected with many leaders within the Inflammation and Immunology sector of the company. Lara’s mentors at Pfizer encouraged her to pursue a doctoral degree following completion of her undergrad with motivation to continue her career path focused in autoimmunity.

Lara is excited to study biomaterials and lupus in the Moore Lab for summer 2022 as part of the Summer Undergraduate Research at Florida program.
