Research Teacher, Mr. Jaak Raudsepp, was pleased to share the news that an alumnus and three current students had their research published in peer reviewed journals. K-12 Director of STEM, Ms. Kimberly Libertini, noted, “We are very proud of the accomplishments and honors earned by both the former and current research students! In the world of research, a publication in a research journal represents esteemed recognition for the work and contribution to the field. I would also like to acknowledge that, Jaak Raudsepp, played a crucial role in pairing these students with mentors, as well as the development and guidance of these research projects.”
Aspyn Palatnick started his project as an 11th grader and has since graduated from both CSH Jr./Sr. High and the University of Pennsylvania. Aspyn was mentored by Dr. Michael Schatz at CSHL and Johns Hopkins University and his research was published in GigaScience. Aspyn was kind enough to include our high school as an affiliation.
Sophia Ketterer (senior), Annabel Shen (junior), and Sophia Shen (junior) started their project during the summer of 2020. They were mentored by Dr. Constance Jeffery at the University of Illinois, Chicago. Their research was published in Nucleic Acid Research. All three students are continuing their research and are being mentored by scientists at Brookhaven National Laboratory, CSHL, and the University of Illinois, Chicago. Congratulations of these very esteemed publications!
