BME Senior Chosen for Johns Hopkins Summer Program August 2018

REU Poster PresentationColette McGarvey, a senior in BME, was one of 14 students nationwide chosen to participate in a REU (Research Experience for Undergraduates) at Johns Hopkins University. She reflects that the REU allowed her to understand her engineering education at a deeper level. Exposure to project design, lab meetings, pilot experiments, and journal papers required her to think critically, troubleshoot, and collaborate with lab members on a daily basis. Over the summer, she not only learned valuable research information but also important life lessons and skills from both her PI and graduate student mentors and is grateful to have had this meaningful experience.
