McNair Research Scholar Bria Goodson’s summer research will be published in the Journal of Biomedical Optics.
Last summer, Goodson, a senior biology major, conducted research at The Johns Hopkins University on laser tissue interactions during photoacoustic imaging of the pancreas and liver. Her research contributed to the forthcoming publication of “In Vivo Photoacoustic Imaging of Major Blood Vessels in the Pancreas and Liver.” Working with graduate and two undergraduate students, as well as faculty, Goodson was the youngest member of the team.
“During my summer at Johns Hopkins, I learned that research is all about learning, patience, and perseverance,” said Goodson. “The members of the team I worked with taught me how to be a successful researcher.”
Goodson is from Walls, Miss.
