Mya Singleton

Congratulations to Mya Singleton French, major; Bioethics minor (2020) for receiving one of two Academic Achievement Abroad awards given by the Forum on Education Abroad for original research accomplished while a student at IFE's Strasbourg Field Study and Internship Program.

While in Strasbourg, Mya combined her studies in French and her passion for medical and health justice by joining a research team at the European Center for Research in Ethics. There, her work focused on the ethical considerations and ambiguities of "The Absence of Informed Consent in the Retroactive Use of Biological Material in Pathological Research". Her findings formed an important part of the grant submission for a large-scale investigation of a huge, unique holding of pathological tissue samples from the 19th and 20th century (housed at the University of Strasbourg), and have been published.

We are so happy to see your work recognized in this way, Mya!
