Cornell College student and professor take part in UI research program
Cornell College student Brianna Christensen, and professor of biology Barbara Christie-Pope are currently working in the lab of University of Iowa researcher Rob Cornell using zebrafish to study neurodegeneration.
Cornell is one of six colleges participating in the Fostering Undergraduate Talent—Uniting Research and Education in Biomedicine program at Iowa.
Now in its fifth year, the program pairs faculty from Iowa’s primarily undergraduate institutions with UI biomedical scientists in summer-long research collaborations and has created a network of long-term research and learning partnerships that extends to all corners of the state. This is the third time Cornell has participated in this program and it’s Christie-Pope’s second visit—she is now a senior FUTURE Fellow.
