Undergraduate Researchers

Every semester we have 2-5 undergraduate research assistants working in our lab. Some stay for just a summer, and others work with us for several years to complete independent research and honors theses. I used to post a list here off all the undergrads who had passed through our lab, but it has become too long (I stopped at 30). We wish them well and their legacy lives with their initials scribbled on sample bottles carefully stashed in the walk-in freezer.
