The Joint Safety Team (JST) in the Department of Chemistry at the University of Connecticut is a student-led initiative to build laboratory safety culture within academic labs, expand graduate student understanding of industry laboratory safety culture, and for students to build professional capacity through building and leading projects. If you are a current graduate student bursting with ideas and looking to make an impact on this department while building your professional network and those all-important “soft” skills, contact Jessica A. Martin at jessica.a.martin@uconn.edu.
