Rachel Dvorak named Marshall Scholarship finalist

Rachel Dvorak, a senior majoring in biochemistry, was a finalist for the Marshall Scholarship, one of the top awards in education. Dvorak hopes to receive a doctorate in neurology, as well as a medical degree, in order to conduct research in neurology. She aims to develop treatments and prevention methods for dementia-related diseases and disorders. She is president of the UW-Madison Campus Lions Club and serves as a peer tutor in several subjects — an unusual amount of extracurricular activity for someone who has already begun a demanding research career.
