Muna Oli, a member of the Center for Undergraduate Research Board of Students (CURBS), graduated in 2016 with a degree in psychology and a minor in bioinformatics. During her time at UF, Muna completed research as a University Scholar. Now, she’s back in Gainesville as a Resident physician in Anesthesiology with UF Health.

Why did you get started in undergraduate research? It’s fun, you learn a lot, changed how I view medicine, I made a lot of like minded friends through research.

How has your research experience shaped your career? I made friends, found mentors and was able to help grow CURBS into what it is today.

What advice would you give someone interested in undergraduate research? Don’t give up when professors don’t respond the first time, be actively involved, don’t just passively do what you’re told.
