Graduate student Jason Palladino (Mellone lab) was a guest speaker at Le Moyne College Scholars Day, which was held on April 21st, 2017.

Scholars Day gives undergraduate students an opportunity to present research they’ve conducted to a broad audience either through a 10 minute talk or by presenting a poster. Every year they reach out to an alumnus who has presented at Scholars Day and is now pursuing their PhD to give a presentation as a guest speaker. The title of his talk was: “What to expect when you’re expecting… to go to grad school”.
