Name: Elizabeth Foster Department: Biomedical Sciences Contact: elizabeth. foster@med. fsu. edu Current Research: I work with undergraduate and medical students interested in conducting research as part of their careers. My research training is in neuroscience and I have experience human subjects research in reading development. What I am Interested in: I’m interested in learning about student research opportunities that can help young scientists develop their skills and interests. Strengths: My extensive experience in advising, student affairs, and research mentorship has given me a unique skill set in communicating research expectations to students. Collaborating with research faculty to mentor student researchers allows me to help students develop basic reading and writing skills so that faculty can concentrate on developing their research programs.
