Georgia Young '20 - Amboseli Baboon Research Project (Summer 2019)

This summer, I worked as a technician in my lab for the third summer. We analyzed samples collected in the field using methanol extraction, ethanol extraction, and radioimmunoassay techniques to learn more about thyroid and glucocorticoid hormone concentrations in yellow baboons. Outside of lab, I was able to take advantage of my time in Durham and explore downtown! From farmers markets and trivia to peach picking, my summer was a lot of fun as well as a great learning experience!
