Undergraduate Student Stories

Meet our Regenerative Bioscience Center Undergraduates

Above is only a handful of undergraduates in our current program. Click each picture to uncover what they have to say.

One of the special benefits of a large research collaboration, such as the Regenerative Bioscience Center (RBC), is the opportunity it provides undergraduates to engage in applied leadership, self-reflection, constructive hypothesizing, and encountering difference in real-world problems and to work under the personal supervision of nationally recognized researchers.

RBC mentors provide guidance in a way that allows their students to learn through independent and unique experiences. “This class opened up many possibilities and actualities that I never knew where possible. It is a truly progressive area of biology with many opportunities that have yet come to light,” student Joette Crews.

Engagement, where faculty use active and collaborative learning techniques. “Often as children, we are taught “no” to ask so many questions, however, scientific research not only encourages this, but focuses on the importance for us to constantly ask questions. When we ask questions, we look for answers, and in turn learn more about ourselves and the world around us,” student Aaron Maslia.

A program that challenge students academically. “My goal has always been to be a doctor, and I know that hands on research can teach me a lot about the medical field that I am missing in just my studies for class. When I become a doctor, I want to see that the regenerative bioscience field is growing and becoming prevalent in medical success stories, and maybe someday this field will be so important in the patients I am treating,” Kimberly Straub.

To be considered for the RBC undergraduate fellows program, students are required to be accepted by RBC faculty and participate in the annual RBC Fellows Symposium held each year at the University of Georgia.
