Syosset High School student Monet Yuan presented her research, Testing Synthetic Lethality of the PIM1 and PIM2 Genes, at the closing symposium of Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory’s Partners for the Future Program in April. This prestigious program provides an opportunity for students to gain hands-on experience in biomedical research, experiencing day-to-day life in a working lab while learning about molecular biology and state-of-the-art research techniques. This was a culmination of work that began at the Sheltzer Laboratory in the summer of 2017, and continued throughout the school year during which Monet was recognized as a Regeneron Science Talent Search Scholar in January, 2017. Monet will continue to conduct research this spring and summer at the Sheltzer Laboratory under the direction of her mentor, Dr. Jason Sheltzer, and will be attending Johns Hopkins University this fall.

Monet Yuan is congratulated by her mentor, Dr. Jason Sheltzer (right) and Syosset High School Research Facilitator Veronica Ade.
