Biochemistry Junior, Ginell McLean, was selected to participate in the 2015 Minority Undergraduate Student Internship Program (MUSIP) at the Edgewood Chemical Biogical Center.  This summer, Ginell will work with a mentor to conduct science and engineering research.  She will present the results of her research during the last week of the program.  Ginell will also present her research results to the SU community since she is using this research experience as part of her Capstone Research course.  

At the April ACS Meeting, Lynnda Watson, Forensics Supervisor at the Baltimore County Police Department, described a career as a Forensic Scientist.  She showed the various instruments used in a crime lab as well as the data obtained from these instruments.  She encouraged those interested in a career in Forensic Science to obtain a strong undergraduate background in science and then to continue with graduate work in Forensic Science.  In the course of her talk, she mentioned Stevenson's Forensic Science Master's Program.

Austin Ikein has always expressed an interest in attending pharmacy school after graduation from SU.  He is very excited to be admitted to Howard University School of Pharmacy and will start there in August.  Austin credits his success in getting admitted to the Howard to his Capstone internship.  Austin worked at Giant Pharmacy and gained valuable experience.  He was then able to describe his experiences in the pharmacy during his pharmacy school interviews.  Congratulations Austin!  We're really excited for you.

Last summer, biochemistry junior Michele Collingsworth did research focused on fin whale calls detected in the waters off of North Carolina under the direction of Dr. Lynn Hodge.  Michele examined the rate at which fin whales produced two specific call types throughout the breeding season, as changes in production rate during this time might convey information on reproductive status. Michele presented her research at the 2015 Southeast and Mid-Atlantic Marine Mammal Symposium (SEAMAMMS) will just took place in Virginia Beach, VA.  This conference is a regional, student-oriented, scientific marine mammal meeting and Michele loved and benefitted from her experience.  Her trip was funded by the School of the Sciences.

 

In addition to winning the student chapter award and all the various scientific presentations, students and faculty found time for some fun as well!
