Juhee Agrawal

Specialized STH

Juhee Agrawal is a senior in the Honors College’s Science and Technology Honors Program (STH), double majoring in neuroscience and Spanish. She chose the STH program because she wanted to learn how to think scientifically about the world around her and develop an independent role in a research lab. Juhee is grateful for the collaboration and community facilitated by the students and faculty advisors. Through these collaborative connections, she has served as a research assistant in Dr. Yogesh Dwivedi’s lab on depression and suicide neurobiology for the last three years.

Since joining UAB, Juhee’s volunteer journey has osmosed into various organizations, both on and off campus. As a freshman, she began volunteering with Active Minds, a student organization that focuses on destigmatizing the conversation around mental health. She also serves as a Peer Mentor and Chair of Volunteering/Study Groups on the Student Executive Council in the Honors College’s STH program. Juhee previously served in leadership positions within the Honors College as an Honors Ambassador and Honors SMART Leader (Student Mentor And Retreat Team).

Juhee has developed a strong academic reputation on campus through her involvement in the Honors College. With the help of Dr. Robin Lanzi and Dr. Angela Stowe in the Honors College Faculty Fellows program, she created a new Mental Health Ambassadors program, which trains UAB students how to conduct promotion outreach and develop presentations/campaigns on mental health. With the skills learned through the STH program, Juhee has co-authored two publications in her research lab, and she will complete a thesis in this lab before graduating.

Juhee completed a month-long service-learning experience in Cusco, Peru, where she observed and volunteered at one of their community health clinics. This experience also helped her improve her Spanish-speaking skills and learn more about the Peruvian healthcare system.

Juhee is truly a blazer at heart. She always travels with a small Blaze figurine so she can take pictures of him in different places.
