Amplify Learning with High-impact Practices

This summer Bianca Olivieri, Class of 2019, presented her research about access to kidney transplants and racial disparities at Harvard Medical School. She is just one example of UCF students participating in undergraduate research. Throughout the school year, she worked in Dr. Candice Bridge’s research. Dr. Bridge is a professor in UCF’s National Center for Forensic Science department. Last summer Bianca attended a summer research program at Emory University.

She wrote about her experience in her blog post, “I think this experience [participating in a summer research program] has opened doors for future collaboration and job opportunities that would not be available to me otherwise.”
