“Elevate gave me my first notable professional experience. It opened up networking opportunities as well as my ability to interact with researchers of differing academic backgrounds. It was extremely informative to not only discuss their research in the lab, but also to hear about the experiences that led to them becoming research professionals. As the youngest and least experienced in the laboratory, it was highly insightful to have the interactions with both my assigned mentor and others working in the lab.”
