Snyderman Scholars take up residence in GCB labs this summer

The Center for Applied Genomics and Precision Medicine (CAGPM) is hosting its first ever Snyderman Scholars Summer Program for Undergraduates. The program runs form May 21 – July 25 and gives undergraduates the opportunity to participate in a faculty-mentored research project in applied genomics and precision medicine. There are two Snyderman Scholars this summer: Sarah Feng (2019) and Vidit Bhandarkar (2019), and both will be mentored by PIs in GCB.

Feng will be mentored by David Hsu, M.D., Ph.D. Her project aims to identify predictors of response to anti-fibroblast growth factor receptors (FGFR) therapy in colorectal cancer.

Bhandarkar will be mentored by Charlie Gersbach, Ph.D. He will be developing CRISPR-based tools to better understand the mechanisms of the glucocorticoid transcriptional response.

At the end of the program, both students will present their research and findings.
