“The Barry Goldwater Scholarship in Excellence Foundation looks for recipients who display a commitment to research in the natural sciences, mathematics, and engineering.”
“I started doing research with bacteria that promote growth in plants my freshman year in [Curators’ Professor of Plant Sciences] Gary Stacey’s lab,” says Evans, at the time a participant in MU’s Freshman Research in Plant Sciences (FRIPS) Program. “I fell in love with it. My sophomore year I was working in genome editing with soybeans.”
