Peters Township High School Senior Nicole Munne has been selected as one of 300 Regeneron Science Talent Search scholars from across the country.

Munne was awarded a $2,000 scholarship for her project, "Developing an In Vitro Human Liver Model for Nonalcoholic Fatty Liver Disease." Her high school also will receive a $2,000 award.

Munne was selected from 1,818 high school senior entrants nationwide. Projects were evaluated based on students' research skills, commitment to academics, innovative thinking and promise as scientists. Five other Pennsylvania students were named among the 300 scholars.

Regeneron and the Society for Science and the Public, which partner on the award, will announce the top 40 finalists on Jan. 23. Those finalists will go on to compete in Washington, D.C. for top prizes.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
