“When I reflect on our work over the past two years, it’s amazing how much our team has accomplished,” says Theberge, second from left in this 2022 photo, which includes undergrads, master's students, PhD students, postdocs, and research staff.

A Q&A with Prof. Ashleigh Theberge

Undergraduate researchers are an important part of Ashleigh Theberge’s chemistry laboratory at the University of Washington. Theberge, UW associate professor of chemistry, is co-principal investigator of the Theberge Group lab, which invents bioanalytical chemistry tools to improve healthcare and advance knowledge of chemical mechanisms in the body.

Theberge shares her thoughts about involving undergraduate students in the lab’s many research projects in the Q&A featured in the College of Arts & Sciences News.
