Student intern in lab

"Anais has been a great lab member. She started teaching another student in the lab the protocol she learned. It was nice to witness Anais mentoring/teaching another student. I actually think Anais could be a great teacher.”
—Dr. Jana Kraft, Associate Professor, University of Vermont (about LC student Anais Sidonia ’19, participant in the Vermont Genetics Network Summer Research Program)
