Steph’s 15-Year Work Anniversary

October 4, 2022

A quick post to give a shoutout to Stephanie, who has been at NC State for 15 years! She is an integral part to our lab’s success and we don’t know what we’d do without her. To celebrate we had cupcakes outside on a beautiful day and got Steph a sparkly purple hat – the next best thing to a bejeweled crown.


Graduation – Spring 2022

May 12, 2022

OML is very proud to have had two of our amazing undergrads graduate last weekend.

Vince will be heading to Madison, Wisconsin, to be a technical solutions engineer at Epic Systems. He will be be working with clients to implement changes to improve Epic’s healthcare database software.

Jennifer is will be working as a CNA (Certified Nursing Assistant) in the Raleigh area during her gap year and applying to medical schools for fall 2023. This summer she’s going to stick around the lab to help us out, so we’re relieved to not be losing her quite yet!
