GSIP: Summer of 2023 Reflections

We hope our students’ individual notes and the photos within this booklet demonstrate the variety of experiences working in Gates Institute
members’ labs. Over 11 weeks, these talented students developed their projects and participated in an array of seminars and events designed to expose them to high-impact opportunities and career paths. They excelled in their laboratory placements and developed friendships and connections with their mentors, fellow lab and Gates Institute staff and our speakers. Ultimately, their contributions advanced medical research on the Anschutz Medical Campus – a fertile environment we hope they will return to for additional study or employment.
