Megan Meany Named 2021 ARCS Scholar

Megan Meany

Megan Meany, a Ph.D. candidate in genetics, is investigating the genetic mechanisms underlying sex determination and gonad differentiation in the brown anole lizard Anolis sagrei. This research will be the beginning steps to large-scale comparative genomic studies and will reveal which aspects of anole sex determination and evolution are shared with humans.

“Being an ARCS Foundation Scholar will allow for my research to reach a broader audience, and I am excited to network and meet other scientists passionate about community outreach and science communication,” Meany said. “I look forward to all of the opportunities that the ARCS Foundation will bring me in the years to come.”
