"Participating in the SURE program was a wonderful and enlightening experience. The program helped me get hands on experience working closely with my PI on a cardiac regeneration research project. During my internship I was able to network with professionals and also form friendships with other students within SURE and other internship programs. I am grateful for the opportunity to have participated in the SURE program."
