We've been a bit silent since the end of the semester as many of our RISE scholars have gone off for their summer research experiences at PhD-granting institutions. Missives have been slow coming in while the students become familiar with their summer projects. Today, the illustrious Victoria Jones shares with us her current experience at Penn State Hershey Medical Center.
I’m Victoria Jones, a rising NCCU sophomore chemistry major from Raleigh, North Carolina. My ultimate aspiration is to earn an MD/PhD.
This summer I’m currently participating in the American Heart Association’s Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (AHA-SURF) program at the Penn State Hershey Medical Center in Hershey, Pennsylvania. It is a ten-week program that allows us to conduct research and present our findings via poster presentations at the final Research Symposium.
