Winnie Zambrana took home a Georgia Tech Outstanding Undergraduate Researcher award April 18 after the campus-wide Undergraduate Research Symposium.

Zambrana works in Joe Brown’s lab, doing molecular analysis of samples from Maputo, Mozambique, where Brown and his colleagues are assessing the effectiveness of urban sanitation on health.

Brown called Zambrana an “all-around star” and said the recognition was well-deserved for her contributions to his research.

Zambrana was one of only a handful of undergraduates across campus to win the award. They celebrate students who’ve gotten involved in long-term research projects and demonstrated leadership in the research environment.
