Last year, Hun School student Emily DeGeorge ’18 applied and was accepted to Columbia University’s Summer Programs for High School Students. As a result, the rising junior enrolled in summer course called Explorations in Genetics and Molecular Biology. During the three-week intensive experience, she completed labs in which she transferred a piece of DNA from one antibiotic-resistant bacteria to another bacteria, making it antibiotic-resistant as well. In the afternoon, she enjoyed lectures from university faculty, and she spent her evenings working on projects such as an in-depth research on Huntington’s disease, a degenerative nerve disorder, which she presented to her classmates and teachers at the course’s end.
