Undergraduate research assistants Julia Lesnick and Emily Rosenthal were both recently selected as PRYDE Scholars. PRYDE stands for Program for Research on Youth Development and Engagement, and is a program of the Bronfenbrenner center for translational research. The Bronfenbrenner center focuses on bridging the gap between doing research and implementing said research in the real world. PRYDE is currently partnering with 4-H to produce research on how young adolescents experience puberty. PRYDE scholars put additional time into these projects and get more exposure to the research process along the way.
