SRF 2018 Summer Scholars: Featuring The Next Generation of Rejuvenation Biotechnology Researchers (Part 2)

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. Follow along as we highlight the 2018 Summer Scholars with links to our Education blog for insights into their profiles and their important work in renowned laboratories.
