Meghan Collins is a pre-candidacy graduate student at the University of Texas at Austin. As an undergraduate she started as a volunteer in Dr. Stefano Tiziani’s lab and continued on to join the Nutritional Sciences Ph.D. program.

Meghan's research focuses on evaluating the additive relationship between therapeutic agents, drugs and natural products, in leukemia. This is achieved by completing metabolomics through the implementation of liquid chromatography coupled with mass spectrometry.
