Scholarship & Alumni Banquet
Program And Winner
We will honor Dr. Emily Mevers at the 35th Annual Alumni & Scholarship Banquet as the 2023 Outstanding Alumni Winner from the Department of Chemistry.
Emily received her B.Sc. in Chemistry at the University of South Florida in 2009 then obtained her Ph.D. in 2014 at the University of California San Diego under the mentorship of Prof. Bill Gerwick. Upon completion of her Ph.D. she joined Prof. Jon Clardy’s laboratory as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Harvard Medical School. She is now an Assistant Professor in the Department of Chemistry at Virginia Tech and her group is broadly interested in working to understand the ecological role of small molecules produced by microbes in complex symbioses and leveraging this information for drug development.
