Issue description

This fall semester marks a new beginning for the Georgetown community and beyond. The ability of many student researchers to regain their footing in their research studies after returning to an in-person environment demonstrates the adaptability and passion for science of the Georgetown student body. In this issue, we are met with a diversity of research, tackling a variety of important topics ranging from gene editing technology to climate change. This publication presents many fascinating and thought-provoking studies: CRISPR and COVID-19, climate change and fungi in salt marshes, energy security in Poland, and the wellbeing of college students serving in a resident assistant role. We hope this issue will serve as a testament to the true commitment that will always find a way to move forward despite the pandemic that continues to challenge the safety of conducting traditional research.
