My experience in Bio 500 will help me as I continue on to graduate school in the fall, where I will be designing and executing more of my own research.
Like many people, my research was thrown off course due to the pandemic. I was originally going to spend the second half of the spring 2020 semester and the following summer conducting research on the effects of excess testosterone on guppies and their offspring, but that had to be put on pause. As it became evident that the pandemic would keep everything shut down longer than originally anticipated, I redesigned and reworked my project to work even with the ongoing pandemic. Ultimately, I am excited about the experiment I designed and how it connects to a larger lab project.
