Lily Raines, a junior-year biochemistry major at Eckerd College, was recently awarded a Goldwater scholarship for 2009. These national awards are highly competitive, and recognize the very best among undergraduate science students in the United States. Lily, from Auburn, Alabama, plans to continue her scientific studies after graduation in 2010, and to conduct research on either vaccine development or drug discovery. In 2008 she was the recipient of a summer internship from the NASA Astrobiology Institute.
