McNair Scholar, Summer 2019
Jennifer is a Biochemistry major from Hunter College in New York City who joined us in the summer with the McNair Program: "I had a blast working with Dr. Hunter in the fly genetics lab. This summer, I was able to develop my research, laboratory and scientific writing skills. The project I was working on with Dr. Hunter involved CRISPR/Cas9, which was really exciting. I’m currently on a pre-medical track and this experience has definitely opened up new career-oriented interests for me."
