Facts about the MET-SROP

In Summer 2022, four participants and affiliates will work with the Molecular & Environmental Toxicology Program’s Summer Research Opportunities. In addition to research in the labs, they will participate in learning sessions that cover various forms of scientific communications, present their data as both papers and proposals, and attend tutorials where they will hear from current graduate student and affiliates about their scientific journeys. A listing of the participants and projects are below:
