Sophie Liebergall

My name is Sophie Liebergall and I am the Chair of URN. I am a third-year in the College of Arts and Sciences, majoring in biochemistry and philosophy. I joined URN as a member of the Research and Scholarship Committee in the Spring of 2016 and am excited to lead this organization in supporting undergraduates at UVA who are either involved or want to be in involved in research in both the sciences and humanities. I work in the Schulman Laboratory in the Department of Pharmacology of the School of Medicine investigating the transcriptional control of metabolism and atherosclerosis by nuclear hormone receptors. Outside of URN, I am a member of the Riding Team and Sustained Dialogue, and I also enjoy running, cooking, and baking (especially cake decorating!).
