Chemistry Students Share Summer Research Experiences

Posted on 9/28/2010 9:59:32 AM

Several undergraduate Chemistry and Biochemistry majors held research internships over Summer 2010, and they're sharing their experiences in the Chemistry Department seminar.

On Friday, October 1, Nadia Szymanski and James Zewe will talk to students and faculty of the department about the research that they carried out over the summer. A previous seminar, held September 10, featured the projects of Deanna Belsky, Jonathan Henninger, and Jennifer Beveridge.

Each summer, Chemistry and Biochemistry majors apply for competitive fellowships and internships at research companies, major research universities and medical centers, and in national laboratories. These positions allow our students to get firsthand experience in cutting-edge research in chemistry, biochemistry, medicine, and physics.

In 2010, students completed research at North Dakota University, Columbia University, Howard Hughes Medical Institute, Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility, Princeton University, Yale University, Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine, University of North Carolina, and Pitt University.
