Dalton learned about Dr. Hoffseth’s research during an intro bioengineering class and Dalton emailed Dr. Hoffseth how he was interested and would like to be involved. The biggest thing Dalton says he is getting out of the research is learning many different skills, such as coding, cleaning and cutting bone, and problem-solving.
