Levittown student Annie Tao, a senior science research student at
Division Avenue High School, was accepted to Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory’s Partners for the Future Program. Developed in 1990, this prestigious program is offered to select students on Long Island who show great promise in biomedical and basic biologic research.
During this yearlong research program, Annie will conduct independent research alongside some of the world’s leading researchers and will have access to state-of-the-art technology, equipment and laboratory materials. Her research will focus on the study of mutations and the timing of gene expression in a strand of caenorhabditis elegans (worms). At the conclusion of the program, Annie will present her research to peers and laboratory mentors and administrators.
The Levittown School District congratulates Annie on this prestigious accomplishment.
