The Research Community

As a L@S GANAS scholar, you will:

  • participate in a research colloquium during your first semester in the Research Experience program
  • work collaboratively with faculty members on research projects
  • participate in national research conferences and departmental seminars in the life sciences

Through your research experiences and engagement with partnering cultural centers, you will:

  • develop self-confidence in your scientific and cultural identities
  • embrace diverse aspects of your identities that are often framed as contradictory
  • recognize that you do not need to leave your cultural identity at the lab’s door to be successful scientists
  • See your cultural identity as a strength
