Each year the Department of Biology and Chemistry offers a limited number of fellowships to selected undergraduates to participate in the Student-2-Scholar program involving laboratory research with a faculty mentor.
The Student-2-Scholar (S2S) program immerses students in hands-on research such as the detection of RNA base pairing using nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy, or the use of high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) to identify density sensing molecules used by Pseudomonas aeruginosa, among many other important topics. Working alongside expert faculty members, students gain valuable experience and skills that prepare them for regional and national conference presentations, distinguishing them as excellent candidates for prestigious graduate schools. Through relevant undergraduate research opportunities, the S2S research program mentors the next generation of scientists, doctors, and teachers.
