Congrats to the inaugural MARC cohort’s success getting into research programs across the country for the summer of 2020! Navigating the complexities of COVID, our MARC fellows successfully landed summer research positions that were primarily virtual. In the MARC program, we mentor undergraduates through their applications to competitive summer research programs where they participate in a 10-week full-time summer research experience at a University of their choice. Below is where our first cohort is spending their summer.
Shariq Khan was accepted into the Summer Undergraduate Internship Program where he will conduct research in the lab of Dr. James Shorter at the University of Pennsylvania.
Anna Liang was accepted into the Summer Undergraduate Internship Program where she will conduct research in the lab of Dr. Wei Tong at the Children’s Hospital of Pennsylvania.
Harjit Kaira received the prestigious Dean’s Undergraduate Research Prize to fund her research in the lab of Dr. Kwangwon Lee at Rutgers Camden.
William Myers was accepted into the Summer Research Opportunity Program where he will conduct research in the lab of Dr. Peter Freddolino at the University of Michigan.
