Summer Blog Series from the Killian Lab

Welcome to our first-ever summer writing project! I am excited to share a few snippets from the different voices of our lab. What to expect: We'll be featuring student-authored blog posts from graduate students, undergraduate scholars, and high school researchers. These posts will range from "how-to" checklists, to interviews with some of our lab members, as well as perspectives on personal experiences related to research and professional development. Target audience: Anyone who wants to learn more about life and interests of the individuals working in an academic lab, particularly one that is integrative across multiple disciplines. When to expect the posts: We'll roll out the posts throughout the summer and into fall, so check back in to our website often for some fresh perspectives.
