Research Spotlight Archives 2012-2013


About Research Spotlight

Research Spotlights highlight the ongoing research of Sackler graduate students and their thesis mentors.  The spotlight feature changes about every six weeks so that the work of students in all of our graduate programs can be recognized during each academic year.  You can use the links below to read research spotlights that appeared earlier this year.
