October 25, 2015

Madeline Krentz, a fourth-year graduate student from Johns Creek, Georgia, was one of five scholars named a 2015 American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists (AAPS) Foundation Graduate Student Fellow. The AAPS Foundation received 100 applications for the program.

Krentz, who received her Bachelor’s degree from the University of Georgia, is a student in the laboratory of Penni Black, Vice Chair and Associate Professor in the College’s Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences. Her research is focused on revealing “Gene Expression Profiles Reveal Alternative Targets of Therapeutic Intervention for the Treatment of Drug-Resistant Non-Small Cell Lung Cancers.”

“I am humbled to receive such a prestigious fellowship from the AAPS Foundation,” said Krentz. “I have great respect for this field and for AAPS and to be honored with this fellowship is a dream come true. I thank my mentor, Dr. Black, and all of the faculty and staff within the College who have supported me and continue to support my investigative career.”
