We welcome dedicated trainees at all levels, from undergraduates to graduate students and beyond, to participate in laboratory research and development opportunities through our laboratory and its affiliated programs.

Student Spotlight

Chloe Kernan

This summer, I learned how to piece together a scientific story, starting by learning about previous research, then exploring through my own experimentation and collaborating with others to make inferences and further develop ideas.

I have loved seeing the intersections of research and patient care through absorbing information in weekly lab meetings, conducting experiments, and seeing its impact on the lives of patients while shadowing in the clinic.
