Bass Connections Annual Report Out Now

Bass Connections released their 2018 Annual Report, which features the two Bass Connections projects that GCB co-led in the 2017-2018 academic year: Blue Devil Resistome and Enabling Precision Health and Medicine.

Many of the undergraduate students who participated in the Blue Devil Resistome project team are continuing their research via independent study with Lingchong You. The Enabling Precision Health and Medicine project team has been renewed for another year.
