Lucy Lan - Wake Forest University

Lucy Lan is a senior at Wake Forest University, majoring in Chemistry and double-minoring in French and Entrepreneurship. Very much an interdisciplinary soul, she loves being creative in varying spheres. Lucy started her own jewelry design business, selling pieces on Etsy and in an Atlanta boutique. She has been performing biochemistry research on Fe-S molecules and bioremediation of sulfur-contaminating compounds in petroleum for the past two years, working towards commercializing results. This entrepreneurial research, partially funded by an NSF Partners for Innovations Grant, has been instrumental in merging her interests in science and business. Lucy has also interned at Novartis Vaccines and Diagnostics, implementing Lean Lab/ Six Sigma organizational management principals in Analytical and Raw Materials Chemistry, Microbiology, Biochemistry, Virology, and PCR laboratories.
Lucy has studied abroad in Dijon, France, researched across China, and volunteered in El Salvador.  These diverse experiences have convinced Lucy of the need for creative, sustainable, and innovative solutions to address global areas of improvement. Lucy plans on pursuing an MD/MBA after graduation.
