I have been conducting this research with two other URI pharmacy students for the past 2 years. As a team, we have written and received URI's "Undergraduate Research Initiative Grant" twice. I've attended SURF and NURDS conferences to present our study and have also presented to EpiVax Inc., an informatics and immunology corporation.
