Becca LeonardMGM Graduate Student (2020)
Heaton Lab





Research Interest: I graduated from Wake Forest University with a B.S. in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology in 2020. During my four years at Wake Forest, I conducted research on the regulation of the RNA-dependent RNA polymerase of Rotaviruses under Dr. Sarah McDonald. I have always been fascinated by virology, and I look forward to pursuing research in infectious disease, specifically immunotherapy and vaccine development.

Personal Interests: Outside of the lab, I love cooking, reading, listening to podcasts, and traveling to new places whenever I get the chance.
