High School students experience the biological sciences

They also heard from a series of UGA undergraduates involved in biological research, including Dervin Cunningham of Albany, who admitted that when he first visited UGA he never imagined he could be doing the kind of research he does today – investigating how a fungus attacks tomatoes and how tomatoes resist.

Great job everyone - students, faculty, our new Provost and high school staff who helped get the students to campus. As Dr. Farmer explained to me some months ago, this is important outreach to area high schoolers - to talk about the diversity of careers in the sciences.
