Latin@s Gaining Access to Networks for Advancement in Science (L@s Ganas)

Project Description
The word “ganas” in Spanish means “motivation sufficient to act.” L@S GANAS supports Latinx students in STEM with a great amount of “ganas”, desire, will and effort no matter where the student comes from or where they are going. The L@s GANAS Research Fellowship is a 2-year program that engages students in research-intensive experiences in Life Sciences, Chemistry, and beyond. Dr. Del Rios is one of many research mentors on campus supporting this program. Students participating in this program work closely with experienced researchers while earning credit and gaining hands-on experience.
