Medical Laboratory Sciences students place eighth in national Cell Bowl competition

Medical Laboratory Sciences (MLS) students recently placed eighth in Cell Bowl 2023, an interactive competition between more than 65 Medical Laboratory Sciences programs nationwide. The program tests students’ knowledge of blood cell morphology through the app CellAtlas and challenges students to correctly identify 30 cells in one minute or less (while also preparing them for lecture tests, laboratory practicals and the board certification exam).

The competition culminated with Wichita State MLS students winning the Second Chance Showdown for the Junior Varsity league and placing eighth in the nation. Special congratulations to Mackenzie Monteith who won the number eight spot by perfectly identifying 30 cells in 30 seconds.

We are proud of our MLS students.
