When Dickinson College rising senior Rizwan Saffie returns to his housing in Princeton’s Spelman Halls after a day's work in the lab, he knows that science doesn't have to be over yet: he has friends with whom he can discuss experiments and findings. A tight-knit community is one of many things that the 72 college students in Princeton University's Summer Undergraduate Research Program in Molecular and Quantitative and Computational Biology enjoy as they immerse themselves in scientific research over 10 weeks.
