Getting involved in research as an undergraduate student can seem like a daunting task. Nevertheless, it can also be a beneficial and rewarding experience. Additionally, research can typically be counted towards elective credits as well as being an excellent boost to your resume. Many students believe that they are unable to participate in undergraduate research until later in their college careers. However, undergraduate research can begin as early as freshman or sophomore year. Even with a busy schedule, research can be done outside of class time, during winter session, and in the summer months.
Congratulations to Beth Lemmon, a rising senior in our group, on receiving one of the prestigious spots as a 2017 Delaware INBRE Summer Scholar! Beth will spend this summer continuing work on her independent project studying the healing response of partial width tendon-bone defects in the rat rotator cuff.
