Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship Student Seminar

Six DeSales students, Corey Screven (’20 Psychology), Samantha Mullin (’20 Biology), Elizabeth Godfrey (’20 Medical Studies), Graziella Greco (’20 Biology), Rebecca Cervantes (‘19 Biology), and Veronika Tews (’20 Biology), were selected to participate in the inaugural Natural Science Department Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) program.

Alongside the six students were three biology faculty members, Drs. Joshua Slee, Joseph Leese, and Austen Barnett, who each volunteered part of their summer to mentor 2 students in their research labs.

The 8-week program was a tremendous success so please come and listen to each group present their findings from their summer research on Friday, October 19 @ 3:00 in the Hurd Science Center Auditorium.

All are welcome to attend.


Salesian Quote of the Day

“Must you continue to be your own cross? No matter which way God leads you, you change everything into bitterness by constantly brooding over everything. For the love of God, replace all this self-scrutiny with a pure and simple glance at God’s goodness.” ~ St. Jane Francis de Chantal
