Things That Make Me Feel Old
Ampersand, the magazine of the University of Kentucky's College of Arts & Sciences, reports in its Fall 2009 issue on the recent graduation of Kelsey Ladt '09, summa cum laude in biology. As an undergraduate Ms. Ladt studied the impact of cyclooxygenase-2 on spinal cord injuries, and she will be spending 2009-10 on a post-graduate research fellowship at the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke. She then plans to pursue a joint Ph.D./M.D., preparatory to a career as a medical researcher. Ladt is fourteen years old.
