Stephanie Campbell, a double major in animal sciences and microbial, molecular and cellular biology, has been nominated for the prestigious Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship. 

Campbell, from Wildwood, Mo., is a middle-blocker on the Auburn Volleyball team. For the past two years, she has worked under the direction of Terry Brandenbourg, associate professor in the Department of Animal Sciences, investigating clock gene expression in porcine adipose and pituitary tissue in lean and obese pigs. Her research will play a role in better understanding the development of obesity. Stephanie has presented her research findings at national and regional conferences, and she has a co-authored journal article under review.

Among her many awards and honors, she was a Cellular, Molecular and Biological (CMB) Summer 2014 Research Scholar, elected to membership to the national honor society of Phi Kappa Phi last spring, named the 2015-2016 SEC Volleyball Scholar Athlete of the Year, and since her freshman year, has been named to the SEC Academic Honor Roll. Campbell was also named to the 2014-2015 CoSIDA Academic All-District 1st Team.
