Summer Student
Mariano at work! His words: “The Microbiology camp that I did in the Summer of 2010 with Dr. Badon and the internship opportunity that you [Dr. Melotto] had given me this year in your department have given me a greater appreciation of the Life Science profession and further motivation to pursue Life Sciences as my major in college.”
