About Emilee Stenson...

Emilee Stenson
(Molecular Genetics, ’21)

Post-Baccalaureate Research Fellow, 2021-22
National Institutes of Health

Second-year Medical Student
Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences (JSMBS), University at Buffalo

Emilee (Attica, NY) prides herself on the work she advances at the intersection of the humanities and the sciences, with an emphasis on gender studies. She started this journey at Fredonia through coursework in her English minor on Virginia Woolf and feminism, which culminated in her independent, multifaceted application of Woolf’s work to medicine. Emilee presented this work via peer-reviewed papers at the 2021 International Conference on Virginia Woolf, the Richard Macksey National Undergraduate Humanities Research Symposium at Johns Hopkins, and the SUNY Undergraduate Research Conference (SURC).

A former member of the Fredonia Honors Program and a double minor in Chemistry and English at Fredonia, Emilee has maintained her passion for the medical humanities as president of multiple clubs at UB, including the Bioethics Club and the Literature Society at JSMBS. In the future, she intends to be a physician and an educator, continuing to implement the medical humanities and bioethics in her work.
