STEM Ambassadors

The STEM Ambassador Program began in 2016 as a training program for a small cohort of University of Utah scientists. Since then, we have grown to work with over 170 graduate students, post-docs, faculty, staff, and undergraduate students. Scroll down to learn about the scientists who have participated. Contact us if you would like to reach out to a STEM Ambassador.

Note that many Ambassador bios were uploaded when the Ambassador joined the program and may not be current.

Bo Price is a graduate student in the Hughes Lab at the University of Utah Biochemistry Department. The Hughes lab studies organelle homeostasis in response to metabolic stresses. Bo’s focus is understanding a newly described morphological adaptation that occurs on the surface of mitochondria called Mitochondrial Derived Compartment (MDC) formation. He is determining the metabolic signaling pathway required for MDC formation to elucidate their role in the mitochondrial stress response. Bo has always been an advocate for programs that aim to educate and encourage involvement with STEM. He hopes to use his new skills from the STEM Ambassador Program to conduct and lead outreach and recruitment activities in his future scientific career. Bo’s hobbies with his family include hiking, snowboarding, stargazing, road trips, museums, and strategy games.
