CSU Student Destiny

"I began working in the lab with Dr. Hegde in order to fulfill a requirement for my major program. In the time that I have been in the lab I have been able to extensively utilize the scientific process and gained a more tangible understanding of the information I learned in my classes through the semesters. Being able to put what I've learned into practice has been a whole new learning experience that's allowed me to see the value of research as a crucial part of a student's educational development and for biomedical advancement in understanding disease mechanisms and develop therapies.”
