Biology Major Conducts Research at National Institution in Maryland


University of Guam

University of Guam junior biology major and chemistry minor Jaena Taitague spent ten weeks this past summer at the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Disease (NIDDK) Laboratory of Endocrinology and Receptor Biology located in Bethesda, Maryland. Her summer research experience was part of the National Institute of Health’s Diversity Summer Research Training Program.

“I love the fact that I was able to conduct lab work in such an amazing place,” Taitague said. “The broader level of research has helped me narrow down my interests and helped me determine what I want to be in the future.”
