On April 18th, the Vermont Genetics Network hosted it’s annual career day. Students from eight different collages in Vermont attended to share and discuss their research projects and to hear a pannel of speakers talk to the students about their own career paths. I’ve had the privilege of photographing a few of VNG’s event’s in the past, and I’m always amazed at what I learn while documenting the event.
