Photo of Jaclyn LiuJaclyn Hui Liu, a San Mateo High School student, was one of 96 high school students from throughout the country to graduate from the 2017 Students and Teachers as Research Scientists (STARS) summer program at the University of Missouri–St. Louis (UMSL). Liu joins a highly esteemed group of gifted young minds -- 96 high school students and six undergraduate research associates -- who graduated from this intensive six week research program. STARS pairs academically talented high school rising seniors and new undergraduate students with more than 60 local scientists in the fields of biology, chemistry, computer science, earth science, engineering, environmental science, mathematics, medicine, physics and psychology. The mentors are top researchers from Confluence Discovery Technologies, the Donald Danforth Plant Science Center, Saint Louis University, Washington University in St. Louis and the host institution, UMSL. As a result of this experience, Jaclyn is one step closer to pursuing a career in science. Congratulations Jaclyn!
