Students attended a session given by Mrs. Diane Payne, Assistant Vice President for Research & Academic Operations, to learn about undergraduate summer research opportunities. Her office helps SU students expand their scientific experience by assisting them in finding summer research opportunities. Some of these opportunities may be through programs offered by the NIH or NSF, internships or research with the Aberdeen Proving Grounds, REU opportunities, and many others! If you are an undergraduate looking to gain real world experience, contact Mrs. Payne at mpayne@stevenson.edu

Students who completed a research or internship project in the spring of 2016 gathered to showcase their posters at the semi-annual School of the Sciences Poster Session.  The students, seniors who completed off-campus research and internship Capstones, as well as sophomores and juniors who engaged in on-campus research, all did a fabulous job.  We were proud to welcome off-campus mentors, family members, alumni, friends and guests from across the campus community.  

This week is Undergraduate Research Week, a week sponsored by The Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR).  CUR is spotlighting the National Conference on Undergraduate Research (NCUR), which took place last week and over the weekend at the University of North Carolina Asheville.  The mission of NCUR is to promote undergraduate research, scholarship, and creative activity done in partnership with faculty or other mentors as a vital component of higher education.  Biochemistry seniors Ciara Faupel, Alicia Greene and Zoe Singman all presented their research at the conference.  Special thanks to SU for funding this amazing trip! 

Six chemistry and biochemistry students and 2 faculty members are on their way to San Diego for the National American Chemical Society Meeting.  The students are presenting posters of their chemistry research projects.  In addition, the American Chemical Society Club (ACS) will receive an award, for the third year in a row, for being an overall great club!  Everyone is looking forward to attending scientific talks, meeting friends and colleagues, and networking!

For her Capstone internship, biochemistry senior, Fya Powell, shadowed an anesthesiologist on the neurosurgery unit at Johns Hopkins Hospital.  She observed lots of surgeries and learned so much about medicine.  She will certainly use all this knowledge in her future career in the health professions.  Fya presented her intership poster at the School of the Sciences Poster Session in December.
