Congratulations to Adina Singer, a 12th-grader at the Stella K. Abraham High School for Girls, who has been named a semi-finalist in the Siemens Science Competition for her work in DNA sequencing in which an efficient protocol for cutting on large-scale samples was developed. Adina did her research this past summer at the Garcia Center at Stony Brook University and has also been named a semi-finalist in the National Merit Scholarship Competition.
“Doing research at Stony Brook was a great experience,” Adina says. “I spent long hours in the lab, but the work was so exciting that it didn’t feel like work. I am grateful to my research mentor, Dr. Jonathan Socolov, for his guidance and support.”
Adina was associate editor of The Looking Glass, SKA’s school newspaper, is captain of the SKA College Bowl Team, and is a member of the Debate Team and Science Olympiad. She also organized a fundraising walk-a-thon for the Alzheimer’s Association in memory of her grandfather, z’l. Mazal tov to Adina on her impressive accomplishments!
