Meredith Ware Celebrated Undergraduate Research and Achievement in Spring Academic Showcase

April 13, 2013

HOUSTON — University of Houston volleyball student-athlete Meredith Ware celebrated undergraduate research and achievement after being selected to participate in the Spring Academic Showcase with her presentation entitled “Evolving Rapamycin Resistance in Drosophila” last week.
 
“Meredith is the truest definition of a student-athlete and we are very proud of the way she has represented our program on and off the volleyball court,” head coach Kaddie Platt said. “She continues to exceed as a student-athlete and her academic skill is beyond impressive.”
 
The junior biology major and psychology minor from Los Angeles, Calif. participated in the educational event at the M.D. Anderson Library on April 11 where she joined members of the campus community, showcasing research, leadership, and service.
 
After being awarded the Provost Undergraduate Research Scholarship for the Fall of 2012 semester, Ware was given the opportunity to work alongside Dr. William Frankino’s lab on campus. Her research project lasted about seven months and was focused on identifying how cells build up resistance to chemotherapeutics, Rapamycin, in particular, over time during cancer treatment by using Drosophila melanogaster, the common fruit fly.
 
Following her research, Ware applied and was accepted to present in the Spring Academic Showcase, where she spoke on her findings.
 
“I really enjoyed getting to share my research with other students and faculty,” Ware said. “It was great to know that my hard work over the last seven months paid off.”

Ware, a defensive specialist for the Cougars, is a three-time C-USA Commissioner’s Honor Roll recipient as well as a Academic Medal honoree. She has played in 96 sets, tallying 183 digs, including a career-high 18 digs in a win over Rice on Oct. 26, 2012. She also currently serves as the Chair of Conference USA's SAAC (Student-Athlete Advisory Committee) - after being elected that position last summer.
