Recent Publications

The MARC program began in Fall 2020. Therefore, students have not yet published. MARC replaces ODST’s former program Initiative for Maximizing Student Development (IMSD) which also provided support to undergraduate students at KU in biomedically relevant fields. The list of publications below is a testament of their hard work.
