Carlo Bocconcelli, a senior at Falmouth Academy and student researcher working in the lab of MBL scientist Joel Smith under the guidance of postdoctoral associate Sarah Tulin, won second place in the Intel International Science Fair Competition, held last week in Los Angeles. Carlo’s project involved developing a method for detecting regulatory regions in the sea urchin genome which produced promising results the lab intends to submit for publication this summer. Carlo will be joining Harvard’s freshman class this coming fall. Congratulations, Carlo!
