Kaltuma Janay

 

Kaltuma Janay is a recent graduate from Portland State University’s Biology program.  She is a Ronald E. McNair Scholar and an Oregon NASA Space Grant Consortium Awardee.  These programs provided her the opportunity to conduct research in Dr. Kenneth Stedman’s lab (PSU Department of Biology) and present her research at various conferences in the Pacific Northwest.  Although she began the Biology degree program as a pre-medical student, she discovered a love for research and plans to earn a PhD in Neuroscience.  She has been a long-time member of LSAMP and continues to support the program because she believes in its missions to diversify the scientific workforce and create an inclusive space where unique ideas and concepts can develop.  Currently, Kaltuma is applying to graduate school and working full-time at a pharmacy.
