  • Volunteer mentor needed: A grade 10 student at Miss Edgar’s and Miss Cramp’s School.

In order to carry out this research, she needs the assistance of a mentor. Although most areas of human genetics are of interest to her she has been particularly acquainted (through the instruction received at school) in the areas of: Stem Cell research; Genetic Mutations; Protein Synthesis. Anyone interested should contact Thomas for more details.
