How PEERs helped me:
"While preparing for ABRCMS through the PEER mentoring program, I learned how to properly format my research into a poster and present the information at a national research conference. Being able to present helped to improve my scientific communication skills, which helped me get accepted into the NIH PREP program at UT Health San Antonio, and inevitably the Integrated Life Sciences PhD program at the University of Georgia. I would absolutely recommend participating!"

My experience with PEERs:
"PEER Mentoring program offers an excellent opportunity for undergraduate students to learn about diverse STEM career paths"

Why PEERs is important to me:

"I strongly believe that cultivating a sense of belonging is the essential secret ingredient to success. Through the PEER mentoring program, biology faculty, Ph.D. students, senior undergraduates, and early career undergraduates engage in tiered mentoring activities that help build community among members of our department.  Together, we work to enhance everyone’s experience in research by creating space to engage in scientific discourse, discuss challenges, provide feedback on each other’s work, prepare for the future, and have fun!"
