-Miranda enjoys mentoring young scientists and takes her role as a mentor very seriously. Many undergraduates and research assistants in the lab have successfully gone on to graduate and medical schools. Two students from her laboratory were recently featured in the OHSU {{http://​www.ohsu.edu/​xd/​about/​vision/​center-for-diversity-inclusion/​academic-resources/​internships/​summer-equity-internship.cfm|Summer Equity Research Program}}, and her laboratory represents a Research Learning Community through the newly NIH-funded ​{{http://​www.pdx.edu/​undergraduate-pathways-to-research-careers/​overview-of-build-exito-model|BUILD EXITO}} program (Building Infrastructure Leading to Diversity, Enhancing Cross-disciplinary Infrastructure Training at Oregon). ​+Miranda enjoys mentoring young scientists and takes her role as a mentor very seriously.
