Outreach

Members of the Keck Lab volunteer with the SMART Teams program (Students Modeling A Research Topic) serving as mentors. The program recruits local high school students to design, build, and present a molecular model of a protein and explain the mechanism of how it functions. The SMART Teams program originated in the Milwaukee area but has since spread to the national level.

More information on the program available here.
