Contact information:

Megan Mayers graduated in December 2018 with a Bachelor of Science in Biology and a minor in Neuroscience from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

During her time as an undergraduate, she was involved in research projects including work with the Duke Clinical Research Institute in which she studied the efficacy of granulocyte colony-stimulating factor in the time to hematologic recovery and the rate of secondary sepsis in neutropenic infants. She also spent time in the Berg lab as an undergraduate research assistant where she participated in work with ClinGen.

Megan is currently working in the Berg Lab and is involved in biocuration for the ClinGen project. She is excited for the opportunity to continue to gain knowledge in the field of genetics as she is pursuing a career in Genetic Counseling.
