Under an innovative initiative called Achieving Excellence in Mathematics, Engineering and Sciences (AEMES), Smith reaches out to students who have expressed interest in those fields to increase their chances of success. AEMES scholars are selected as first years and are supported by the program all four years of their college experience. During those years, the scholars conduct research with a faculty advisor and participate in a peer mentoring program. Here's what two members of the research team have to say about the lab work they are doing with Laura Katz, Elsie Damon Simonds Professor of Biological Sciences.
