James Gagnon

Title: Assistant Professor
College: Science
School / Department: School of Biological Sciences
Mentoring Philosophy:

Our primary goal is to provide a platform where students can explore their interests, learn conceptual, experimental, and communication skills, and contribute to scientific inquiry. Our team of postdocs, graduate students, and undergrads provides a friendly and intellectually stimulating support community. Undergraduates in our lab are considered as peer scientists in the lab whose input is valued and respected. The student will be part of a small group working on the heart, currently one postdoctoral fellow, one graduate student, and one undergraduate. This small team, including the SPUR student, will meet every week throughout the summer, alongside regular 1-on-1 meetings with the professor, to discuss short-term and long-term goals, and career planning. The student will also attend and present in our weekly lab meetings and journal clubs, and will be encouraged to attend virtual or in-person seminars and scientific conferences.
