Megan Blewett is currently a PhD student in chemistry at the Scripps Research Institute, where she is working in the lab of Benjamin Cravatt. Her interests are in lipid biochemistry, drug development, and autoimmunity. Megan got her undergraduate degree at Harvard, where she majored in chemistry and worked with Professor EJ Corey studying the mechanistic basis of different oxidation reactions. As a high school student, she worked at the Broad Institute using small molecule microarrays to identify compounds that regulate myelination and with this work placed seventh in the Intel Science Talent Search. Also as a high school student she used epidemiological tools to study the geographic distributions of multiple sclerosis and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, placing first in the Young Epidemiological Scholars Competition. In her spare time, Megan enjoys developing websites (www.voxhealth.org), running half-marathons and marathons, and picking locks. She is happy to talk with any students interested in chemistry or biochemistry.
