For her capstone experience, Senior Biochemistry major, Rachel Grewette, was selected to participate in the Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) Program at Michigan State University. Under the guidance of several graduate students and professors, she performed experiments in organic synthesis and cell culture. Here's how she described her summer:  "It was a great experience overall!  Since I had the opportunity to work with different people in the lab, I've been learning a lot. Everyone in the lab is great and always willing to go out of their way to help and teach me new things. The program also holds weekly seminars for students thinking about going to graduate school, which have been very helpful to me throughout the program."  Rachel is shown here presenting her research at the 2019 Mid-Michigan Symposium for Undergraduate Research Experiences.
