Amy Munnelly is a junior who is majoring in Biomedical Engineering and minoring in Economics. She has been a member of Innoworks since the summer of 2006 and served as a mentor during the 2006 and 2007 Innoworks programs. During the fall of 2007, Amy was accepted into the Pratt Undergraduate Research Fellows Program. As a Pratt Fellow, she is conducting experiments to characterize the adhesions formed between layers of arterial cells. Prior to this project, Amy worked in a cardiovascular simulations laboratory where she analyzed features of aortic endothelial cells and performed experiments to optimize the surface conditions on which the cells were grown. Additionally, Amy is a secretary of FEMMES (Females Excelling More in Math, Engineering, and Science), a program which aims to boost young girls' interest in math and science and encourage them to pursue studies in those fields. In her spare time, Amy enjoys ice skating, crossword puzzles, and Carolina Hurricanes hockey.
