The following blog post was written by a 2014 National Science Foundation (NSF) funded Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) student following their internship at BIOS.
Hello! My name is Chloe Emerson and I am a senior at Wellesley college studying Biology and Philosophy. This fall I have been participating in the NSF-REU program at BIOS researching tissue regeneration in the variegated sea urchin, Lytechinus variegatus, with Dr. Andrea Bodnar and Dr. Helena Reinardy.
In addition to working in the lab, I've also had a chance to explore Bermuda with the other REU students. Our adventures have included trips to the beach and snorkeling adventures at the nearby Whalebone Bay.
Exploring Horseshoe Bay with Gabe.
Snorkeling with Mia at Whalebone Bay.
Turtle Bay with the REUs.
My experience in Bermuda this fall has been incredible on both personal and professional levels. I learned an incredible amount throughout the course of my research project and met a group of really amazing people. I'm so thankful to have had this experience and hope to return to BIOS in the future.
