Meet a

"I felt very prepared and more importantly, the Human Biology department helped give me so many options after graduation. I spent a full summer and 2 semesters in the Brusich Lab doing research with Drosophila melanogaster (fruit flies). Along with that lab experience I did research article review, for a year with Dr. Brusich’s and Dr. Kibbe’s research groups. I gained such a diverse range of experiences and insights that I could have taken in many different directions!"
