A huge thank you to our generous donors so far: we have reached over 70% of our $2500 goal!
For this update, we wanted to share some students' perspectives on why they are interested in the Primer course.
"One of my primary reasons for deciding to attend Berkeley was my strong attraction to the culture of undergraduate research. I want to be an active and knowledgeable member of this community and become involved with a lab on campus fairly soon. This DeCal instantly appealed to me: not only is it excellent preparation to dive into the world of undergraduate research, both in terms of basic technique and mentorship from experienced peers, but it covers topics that I genuinely would love to learn about."
"I am interested in taking this DeCal because I am want to get involved in research at Berkeley but feel I need to strengthen my laboratory techniques before getting into a lab. I am a transfer student and realize I am missing some skills my counterparts have received in their undergrad careers."
"I work in a physical chemistry lab but I am very interested in how this research can be applied biologically. That's why I want to learn more about how a molecular biology lab works and the techniques used to do research on cells and proteins."
Thank you for keeping up with us through this update! Please share our project page so that we can reach more people and be closer to achieving our fundraising goal!
