Dr. Laurencin Hosts a Meet and Greet Style Luncheon for the 2019 REM Students

REM 2019 REM 2019 2


This afternoon, Dr. Laurencin and Dr. Lo welcomed the 2019 REM students with a meet and greet style luncheon. The Research Experience and Mentoring (REM) program aims to mentor students from diverse backgrounds to prepare them for careers in STEM-related disciplines. The program recruits high school students, undergraduate students, and teachers in professional development to provide them with skills including communications, scientific writing, and collaboration, while providing a high quality research experience.

Each summer, participants in the REM program are welcomed at UConn Health for research training. Participants learn the basic aspects of research including research problem identification, experimental design, and execution. Our laboratories have researchers at all levels (post-docs, grad students, undergraduate and faculty members) so there is an opportunity to learn from a variety of scientists.
