Augusta Prep's Huo named STEM scholar in nationwide competition

Augusta Prep senior Emily Huo was recently named a Scholar in the Regeneron Science Talent Search 2024, the nation’s oldest and most prestigious science and math competition for high school seniors. The competition is owned and produced by Society for Science.

Of the 2,162 applications received from high schools in 46 states, Guam, Puerto Rico and 10 other countries, 300 were selected as a Scholar. Each student who is named a Scholar receives $2,000 and each school receives $2,000 as well. Later this month, the top 40 students in the competition will be named finalists.

Emily was one of just three students in Georgia (and the only one in the Augusta area) selected as a Scholar. Her project title for the competition was: Targeting Macrophage Glycolysis Suppresses Kidney Scarring in a Rodent Model.
