HHMI Young Researchers
From pain to tiny arachnids, Nicole Mathews applied concepts from her science courses as she pursued answers to real-world questions in the lab.
Tiny Australian Arachnids
Collecting specimens in Australia and identifying them in the lab taught Michelle Coblens a lot about the power of original research.
Health Policy Pursuits
Jyothi Dhanwada researches pain and has interned on a U.S. Senate committee in Washington to learn firsthand about the intersection of science and health policy.
Rivers of Electricity
A laptop that partially charges itself? It could happen. Noah Lupu-Gladstein explored cutting-edge thermoelectrics research in Professor James Heyman’s physics lab.
Clues from Antarctica
As part of a Keck Consortium research project, Hali Englert studied rocks from Antarctica for what they can tell us about climate change.
Reef Diving in Belize
Ilian DeCorte made daily scuba dives in Belize to learn why otherwise endangered coral were thriving there.
A Database of Brains
Bioinformatics at Harvard–MIT’s Health Sciences and Technology Program allowed Issa Ali to combine his research interests in computer science, biology and chemistry.
Rocks Tell the Story
In Glacier National Park, Emily Diener and Eric Stephens took core samples that illuminate the geological history of the landscape.
Geology in Glacier Park
At Glacier National Park, Emily Diener used core samples from lakes to investigate their geological history.
In Marcos Ortega’s lab, Djoser Ramsey investigated how to interrupt the reproduction of viruses, such as one that causes lymphoma.
Trees and Climate Change
Trees store carbon, which helps mitigate climate change. Eli Liebman investigated this process in northern Michigan.
From the Farm to the Lab
Economics major Cody Dail is using the many resources at his disposal to prepare himself for medical school.
