2023 Lucas T. Ahn Family Scholarship Recipient

September 25, 2023

Congratulations to Nadia Wallace, an undergraduate working in Dr. Lawrence T. Reiter’s lab, on being the second recipient of the Lucas T. Ahn Family Scholarship!

“At the Neurology department of UTHSC in Dr. Reiter’s lab, I dedicate my time to finding possible UBE3A substrates that trigger the onset of epilepsy that occurs in dup15q individuals. I continue my research to broaden my understanding of Dup15q and aid in finding effective treatments in the future of this field.  One day, as a Physician Associate, I will be able to carry this knowledge to provide the best care to any patients living with dup15q syndrome and establish hope for their families.” – Nadia

Many Thanks to the Ahn Family for supporting this Scholarship! The Lucas T. Ahn Family Scholarship, funded by the Ahn Family, is a one-time gift to support a student who has an interest in exposure to a laboratory environment that targets Dup15q research.

“Our hope is that one day, advances in research will lead to targeted therapies that helps Lucas to gain more cognitive abilities, reduce seizure frequencies and help him be more independent with all aspects of daily life.” – Ahn Family
