Anjali Phadnis Worked at Deheyn Lab Through NExT Internship Program

Pacific Ridge School students are encouraged to pursue their interests during their summer internships. Anjali Phadnis ('22) of San Marcos had the opportunity to work alongside Post Doc students in the Deheyn Lab where they investigated the role of ice plant’s epidermal bladder cells in the organism’s photosynthetic success. She gathered plant samples to photograph cross sections of the plant and was also encouraged to design and pursue her own research in relation to what they were working on already.
