This is a request for an ARRA Administrative Supplement for support of summer undergraduate researchers whose work will assist in attainment of the aims of the Program Project Grants 2P01HD037105 "Egg to Embryo: Gene Regulator Circuitry in Development". The request includes two summer undergraduate student workers for each of two years in the Component of Marianne Bronner-Fraser; two summer undergraduate student workers for each of two years in the Component of David McClay; and six s
ummer undergraduate student workers for each of two years in the Davidson Component. The research projects these students will undertake are directly in line with the Specific Aims of the parent grant as detailed in the Application. These specific Aims are synergistic with respect to another objective of the Program Project. An important aspect is that all three of the Co-PIs' labs have many years of experience mentoring summer undergraduate student research workers and ensuring that the
ir projects have a high probability of achieving success.
