Heather Drake (right), a chemistry senior, completed her capstone internship this summer at Taylor Technologies.  She was excited to intern there because she worked with SU 2010 Chemistry alumni Becki Shook, Janine Ladzinski (left, in picture) and Alyssa Pawlowicz!  For her internship, she ran interference tests with colorimeters against the iron reagents of Hach and Taylor Technologies.  She really enjoyed her internship because she was able to use and perfect what she learned in coursework and labs at SU.  In her own words, "I think that this internship was a great experience to see what goes on in an industrial lab setting, and further confirm my hopes of doing something analytical after I graduate."


Biochemistry seniors (l to r), Tyler Rutherford, Alicia Greene and Chris Toth, all engaged in research experiences at the University of Maryland, School of Medicine this summer.  They all reported incredible growth as scientists, in addition to absolutely loving the experiences!  At the end of the summer, they presented their work at a poster session, which was attended by faculty and staff from the Chemistry Department.

For her capstone research, biochemistry senior, Kayla Bell is researching three of the most common mutations related to lung cancer. She is really enjoying the exposure and challenges of working in a research setting. She likes the hands-on work, and being able to make decisions about her project. Kayla still hasn't settled on an exact career path, but is using this experience to explore a new career option.

Biochemistry senior, Rebecca Moore, is completing an internship at MedStar NRH Rehabilitation Network in Ellicott City working as a clinical assistant under seven different physical therapists. "I enjoy my internship because I am able to be involved with the patient's recovery by assisting them in their rehabilitation. I prepare heat, ice, electrical stimulation pads, game ready sleeves and machines, and run patients through exercises depending on the patient's needs for their recovery. In the future, I plan on attending graduate school to work towards my Masters and, eventually, my Doctorate in Physical Therapy."

Becca is shown here (on right) practicing the exercises with another clinical assistant at her internship site.

Chemistry senior, Katie Abbott, is completing her capstone internship in a specialty mail order pharmacy (directRx pharmacy) this summer, working in the home delivery department. In this department, she processes medications through insurance companies. She's excited to be learning a lot about pharmacy, which is preparing her well for her planned career in pharmacy.
