Jelani Deajon-Jackson, an undergraduate student in the Dougherty Lab, was recently awarded a BioSURF fellowship by Washington University in St. Louis to train with his mentor Mike Vasek, a postdoc in the lab. The Washington University Biology Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship Program (BioSURF) introduces WashU undergraduate students to research in life sciences with guidance from WashU faculty mentors. BioSURF is competitive and is modeled on the grant-seeking process, with faculty from the WashU Biology Department and Medical School reviewing applications. Congratulations, Jelani!
