Opening for new graduate (MS) student interested in translational human milk research.

Dr. Yimin Chen, an Assistant Professor for the Nutritional Sciences program at the University of Idaho with extensive experience in clinical practice is looking for a new graduate student in her lab starting Spring semester (January 2023).

Do you know any undergraduate students who recently graduated (or a past student looking to return to school) and might be interested or looking to pursue an M.S. degree? Dr. Chen is currently looking for a motivated individual with a BS degree in a science field who would be interested in her research program and obtaining his/her M.S. degree. More specifically, the potential student should be interested in conducting research and completing a M.S. thesis using the cell culture model to investigate how different infant feeding types affect intestinal inflammation.
