This past Spring (from April 10- 13), I had the opportunity to attend the 2019 National Council on Undergraduate Research (NCUR) conference in Atlanta, Georgia. I had this chance because of SPIRE funding. Through NCUR and SPIRE, I was able to present my research from the Boyce Lab on the "Role of SEC24 O-GlcNAcylation in COPII Trafficking". By showing my research, I was able to gain novel insights into my project through questions from faculty and peers from other institutions.
Finally, I was able to see others present their exciting research ranging from art to the sciences. It was an interesting experience, and I am thankful to have been a part of it.
