Two health science studies undergrads received fellowships to support their participation in research opportunities in the Curl Agricultural Health Lab!
Alyssa Romero is a Health Science major, and she received a HERC Fellowship to support her time working in the CAHL. This is a paid, 10-week research experience offered to undergraduate students by the Institute for STEM & Diversity Initiatives. HERC Fellows receive a $3,000 stipend, additional travel funds, and the opportunity to present their research. Nate Weber is a Health Science major with a Pre-Med Emphasis who has received an INBRE fellowship, providing him two semesters of funding to support his time working in our lab.
Both Alyssa and Nate will be involved in a study of pesticide exposure among pregnant women in Idaho. They will be involved in recruiting participants, conducting informed consent meetings, administering interviews and questionnaires, collecting and analyzing biological samples, and analyzing and presenting data.
