The Mahtomedi Modeling A Protein Story (MAPS) is a group of dedicated young women at Mahtomedi High School who share a passion for biology. After 12 months of intensive fundraising and research, the group will travel to San Diego to present their research at the 2020 Experimental Biology Conference.
The Experimental Biology Conference is the largest and most prestigious interdisciplinary meeting of its kind. Life sciences and biomedical researchers from all over the world meet to network and share cutting-edge research that leads to discoveries and career advancement in the areas of anatomy, biochemistry and molecular biology, investigative pathology, pharmacology and physiology.
The group is fundraising through manual labor, including pulling buckthorn, beach cleanup, weeding gardens, mulching, or any other work that you need. The group asks for a minimum donation of $10 per hour of work. If you have projects that you would be willing to have the MAPS group do, please contact their advisor Jim Lane at firstname.lastname@example.org.
