SRF 2018 Summer Scholars: Featuring The Next Generation of Rejuvenation Biotechnology Researchers

The SRF Summer Scholars Program offers undergraduate students the opportunity to conduct biomedical research to combat diseases of aging, such as cancer, Alzheimer's, and Parkinson's Disease. Under the guidance of a scientific mentor, each Summer Scholar is responsible for his or her own research project in such areas as genetic engineering and stem cell research. In this and the next few newsletters, we will be highlighting several of our Summer Scholars and linking to the Education blog where you can view their profiles and learn more about what they've been up to in the laboratory.
