Summer research student Amy Kaplan emailed us to let us know that she had been offered early acceptance to Tufts University! Amy joined our group as part of the Secondary Student Training Program (SSTP) at the University of Iowa and spent the summer studying the long-term effects of supplemental oxygen on pediatric physiology. The SSTP program gives high school students the opportunity to work in a university laboratory for the summer, gaining research experience and getting a leg up on college life. Her work was presented at the end-of-summer SSTP symposium and the FASEB summer research conference.
We wish Amy the best of luck and know that she has a bright future ahead of her!! Way to go, rockstar!
