Admissions is underway for the Fall 2012 class. The CMB Program interviewed the strongest applicants on January 27, February 10, and February 17. It was great to see the large turn out at the receptions. Applicants have until April 15 to make their decisions, so don’t be surprised if any of them contact you for more information.
The Boyson lab has identified a genetic locus that regulates Natural Killer T cell function. My specific project is to determine the role of SLAMf6, a gene located within this locus, on NKT cells. I chose UVM CMB because of its location near Lake Champlain, the caliber of research being performed on campus, and how happy everyone is. One of my favorite things to do is grab a cup of coffee and enjoy the lake. Victoria DeVault
