Special Thanks

The production of this website/module would not have been possible without the generous assistance of the Whitehurst Laboratory. Their laboratory page can be found at http://www.med.unc.edu/pharm/people/primaryfaculty/angelique-whitehurst and contains links and academic references for their current research and published papers.


Additional thanks to Amy Wehn, my supervising Post-Doc for her assistance and guidance through the world of scientific research.


Finally, a thanks to the UNC-BEST program and the Howard Hughes Medical Institute for sponsoring this internship and their aid in producing this website.


The HHMI-Future Teacher program was supported in part by a grant to UNC-Chapel Hill from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute through the Precollege and Undergraduate Science Education Program. The UNC Baccalaureate Education in Science and Teaching (UNC-BEST) Program is a collaboration between the School of Education and the College of Arts and Sciences. The Program allows science and mathematics majors to earn their high school science teaching license and their science degree in four years.
