Schreyer Scholar Emily Snow

I think being in the Schreyer Honors College definitely helped me have a leg up in finding research opportunities and having professors confident in my ability to take on the responsibility of research. I’m working with stem cells and regenerative medicine. I was awarded an Erickson Discovery Grant this past summer and then the College gave me a summer grant to work on my research.
