GenOM ALVA Summer 2003

This was the inaugral summer for the GenOM ALVA program and these twelve students helped pave the way for the program as we know it today. During their summer research internships they were given extensive wetlab training, daily math workshops and tutoring to better prepare them both for their work in the lab and their undergraduate careers.

Since their time as ALVA interns these students have accomplished great things in a variety of fields. To learn more about their experiences in the ALVA program and to see where they are now, select the links below.
