Tyler Wagner teaches Dantria Grace and Christen Nelms laboratory techniques at P

Dr. John Carlson will continue collaborations with minority faculty member Dr. Ketia Shumaker at the University of West Alabama, a predominantly minority-serving undergraduate institution. Dr. Shumaker and a team of 6 undergraduate students from the University of West Alabama will visit Penn State University for two months each summer. The students will receive a week-long hands-on training in the molecular biology teaching lab of Dr. L. Escote-Carlson at PSU, followed by assignment of research projects which the students will conduct in pairs in the Schatz Center for Tree Molecular Genetics. All expenses for the visit of UWA summer students will be covered by the project, including flights and room and board.
