Undergraduate Research Scholar brought on board

With the start of the academic year, Dr. Suzuki welcomed Jocelyn Cao from Kenosha, WI on to the lab team. We are up to a team of 3! Jocelyn is a first year undergraduate student pursing a degree in Biology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. She was admitted to the University’s Undergraduate Research Scholars program this summer and found the Suzuki Lab through this program. The Undergraduate Research Scholars program is a prestigious academic experience that brings together highly motivated first and second year undergraduate students interested in pursuing research, with mentoring, creative-minded UW-Madison faculty and staff. Here are Jocelyn’s thoughts on the URS (Undergraduate Research Scholars) program and the Suzuki Lab:

“As a URS Scholar, I am part of a huge community of students, faculty, and staff who learn, create, and serve together. In addition, I am exploring hands on what it is like to work in a specialized field of my own interest. So far in the Suzuki lab, I have had the opportunity to analyze kinetochore florescence, get up to date on current discoveries in cell biology as well as practice standard laboratory procedures. Everyone has been wonderful and has taken the time to teach me new skills that I would not be able to do in a classroom setting.”
