2023 Summer

26 Aug 2023

It has been a very busy and productive summer for the GRE lab. First, it was Cole and Ava’s poster presentations at the Summer Undergraduate Research Conference (SURF). Before the end of the REU program, the lab also organized a potlock (we miss you, Ava!). Lindsey, Emily and Baylee went to the Summer Symposium at the Penn State University, on the topic of “Chromatin and Regulation of Gene Expression”. All three presented their work and got a lot of feedback. Last but not least, Cole, Varshu, Hanxi and myself went to UIUC to join the Midwest Neglected Infectious Disease conference, where we made lots of friends! Summer is too short, as always…
