Catie Newsom-Stewart received her degree from Lafayette College in 2017. As an undergraduate, she spent a year and a half alongside Dr. Eric Ho compiling data required for the creation of a free-access database, namely gb4gv, to aid genomic studies of geminiviridae, a detrimental plant pathogen. She then spent a year in the lab of Dr. Robert Kurt working to characterize the transcriptomes of neutrophil subpopulations involved in both progressing and regressing breast tumors at early time points. In the Morris lab, Catie will delve into reprogramming and single-cell biology.
