Allison Beckmann graduated in May 2015 from VCU with a degree in Biomedical Engineering and minors in both Mathematics and Chemistry. Throughout her four years, she was a part of the Honors College, Biomedical Engineering Society, Tau Beta Pi, Phi Eta Sigma, and the Inter-Health Professional Alliance with the MCV campus. She began researching in the summer of her Sophomore year through the Honors Undergraduate Research Program. This program connected her with Dr. Pawluk, her PI for the next two years. With Dr. Pawluk, she worked in the Biomedical Engineering Department’s Haptics and Rehabilitation Lab. In the summer of 2014, she went to Germany as a part of RWTH Aachen University’s Undergraduate Research Program.
More recently she is attending medical school at Eastern Virginia Medical School. Though she is currently focusing on the intensive course-load, she plans to continue to pursue medically related research in the summer of 2016.
