Undergraduate gains valuable research experience at the Janeway Pediatric Research Unit
The research video blog series highlights undergraduate students participating in the University Student Summer Internship Program (USSIP). The program, made available through the Office of the Vice-President (Research), is one of the outcomes derived from the first year of the Strategic Research Intensity Plan 2014-2020. The program is intended to give undergraduate students research experience and provide them with valuable skills and mentorship from faculty members and graduate students.
The third in our series features Peter Gregory, a recent graduate of Memorial’s Bachelor of Science Honours program, with a major in Biochemistry. His research internship has led to him working at the Janeway Pediatric Research Unit at the Health Sciences Centre under the supervision of Dr. Leigh Ann Newhook. He is part of a research team studying issues related to mental health, diabetes, autism spectrum disorder and breastfeeding.
