The John B. Pierce Laboratory


Tessa Adler awarded the Undergraduate Research Excellence Fellowship from the American Physiological Society

Congratulations to Tessa Adler, Yale undergraduate student in the lab of Dr. Nina Stachenfeld, who was awarded the Undergraduate Research Excellence Fellowship from the American Physiological Society. This competitive APS program funds only six full-time undergraduate students with significant prior laboratory research experience to work for 10 weeks during the summer in the laboratory of an established APS investigator. The intent of this program is to encourage students to pursue a career as a basic research scientist. Fellows also receive a travel grant to allow them to attend and present their research data at the following year’s Experimental Biology annual meeting.
