This summer, biochemistry senior, Ginell McLean is participating in the 2015 Minority Undergraduate Student Internship Program (MUSIP) at the US Army Edgewood Chemical Biological Center at Aberdeen Proving Ground.  Ginell reports that the summer is going really well. The purpose of her research projects is to aid in protecting the war fighter as well as civilians.

"I love the fact that I am doing research that can change the world.  Having the opportunity to gather data that will be useful for terrorist attacks and civilians health is just amazing to me. It feels great to be able to work in a facility that helped with the 2001 postal office anthrax scare situation and to be doing research that would prevent an incident like that from occurring again."

 This summer research experience fits in very well with Ginell's career plans.  "My career goals are to work within the government and aid in the benefit of the war fighter. I  have always had a strong urge to work with people who were affiliated with the armed forces and serve them as they as they have served our country."

Congratulations to Chemistry senior and BS/MS student in Forensic Sciences, Andrew McGregor, on being chosen as an intern in the Summer Intern Program for Information Assurance (SIP/IA) with the National Security Agency (NSA)!  Andrew will spend his summer involved in information assurance projects, including protecting and defending the nation's information systems networks and outmaneuvering cyber adversaries.  In order to be chosen for this very selective and competitive internship, Andrew submitted an extensive application and went through a long security clearance process.  Andrew is really excited about this amazing opportunity!  

Biochemistry Senior, Samantha Allen, spent her summer preparing for pharmacy school.  In addition to studying for her PCAT (Pharmacy College Admissions Test), Sam completed an internship at Giant Pharmacy. She had a great experience there and learned so much.

While at the internship, her supervisor allowed her to complete the hands-on experience and learning modules needed to sit for the Pharmacy Technician exam.With her coursework complete and a strong internship experience completed, Sam is well positioned for applying to pharmacy school!

Chemistry senior Andrew McGregor attended an SU Career Event and found himself an amazing summer opportunity! Andrew was one of the few undergraduate students chosen this summer to work as a Fellow in the Baltimore City Mayor's Office. He worked at the Department of Public Works determining ways to increase the recycling rate across Baltimore City.

To do this, he studied what percentage of people recycle along each city truck route and investigated how 40 other cities across the US encourage recycling. At the end of the summer, Andrew presented his plan to Baltimore City leaders.

During the summer, Andrew learned and practiced many skills which will be pertinent to his future successes- networking, comminication, negotiation and presenting skills. What a great summer he had!  

Biochemistry junior Alicia Greene spent the summer at the Nathan Schnaper Summer Intern Program (NSIP) in Cancer Research at the University of Maryland School of Medicine. She worked under the direction of UM faculty member, Dr. Arnob Banerjee, studying T-cells. She had an amazing summer working on her project, "STAT5 Activation and ATM Expression in T-cell Lines" and plans to use all the information, skills and experience she gained as she continues towards her career goal towards becoming a physician.
