Molecular Parasitology part of CUREnet:CURE Collection
In Spring 2021, we piloted a mini-CURE where student groups from University of Mary Washington and Georgia State University collaboratively completed research projects as part of a research-intensive course on Molecular Parasitology. The benefits of this approach were immediately obvious as students interacted across institutions, learned from each other's disciplinary expertise while informing their own research with data collected by their collaborators.

CUREnet Exemplary Collection This CURE has been identified as exemplary based on CUREnet's review criteria.
