Cesar Zamora participated in the 2020 UF/IFAS Summer Undergraduate Internship Program coordinated by the UF/IFAS Research Dean’s Office. The program is a collaborative effort between the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences (CALS) and The Florida Agricultural Experiment Station (FAES). Interns are supervised by a faculty member conducting one of nearly 500 active research projects across the state. Each project has specific goals and objectives that the intern will help achieve during the length of their internship experience. Typically, the internship is catered towards exposing students to research who have not previously held a research position.
Cesar worked under the supervision of assistant professor Raelene Crandall and postdoctoral research associate Jennifer Fill. Their research was conducted at the Ordway-Swisher Biological Station (OSBS) in Melrose, FL using seed funding provided by the UF/IFAS Research Dean’s Office.
His contributions were so significant that he was included as a co-author on a peer-reviewed journal article published in PLoS ONE.
