I’m honored and extremely thankful to have the opportunity of partaking in Mayo Clinic’s Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF). The internship is a 10 week program on Mayo Clinic’s campus in Rochester, Minnesota. Throughout the summer, I’ll have the opportunity to learn and work alongside scientists and physicians in their research endeavors. Personally, I’ll be working with Dr. Saranya Wyles in Regenerative Sciences. I’m very excited for this opportunity and can’t wait to get started! Of course, none of this would have been possible without the support of my amazing family at the Bonthuis Lab. Shoutout Paul, Daryl, Erin, Leah, Jill, and Sam!
