Great news: Allison has been admitted into the 2020-2021 UROP Research Scholars Program!
The UROP Research Scholars Program is designed for students who want to expand on their first year UROP experience and participate in UROP for a second year at an advanced level. In this program, students build upon the knowledge gained in a first undergraduate research experience to further explore the connections between research, a liberal arts education, and communicating skills to advance their future professional goals. Students are expected to explore various written and oral possibilities for communicating their research process, identifying the limits set by the discipline and the opportunities that lie beyond.
Allison was selected based on her research proposal, titled “Spatial learning of C. elegans model nematodes of genetic background related to normal and pathological aging“, and her personal and research statement.
Can’t wait to start!
