The research of biology students Rebecca Falconer (’19) and Chris Gallego Lazo (’19), undergraduate researchers in Dr. Andy Smith’s lab,  was highlighted in articles in Science Daily and EurekAlert! The articles summarized their work, which characterizes the structure and mechanics of a remarkable natural glue. This glue is produced as a defensive secretion by one species of terrestrial slug.
