Research and Scholarship

My name is Sophie Liebergall and I am the Chair of the Research and Scholarship Committee. I am a second year in the College of Arts and Sciences, majoring in Biochemistry and Philosophy. I joined URN as a member of R&S in the Spring of 2016, and am excited to lead my committee in organizing the annual Research Fair, along with a series of year-round events to support Undergraduates at UVA who are in involved in, 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 Medical School investigating 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!).
