Summer Research Opportunities On Campus

Summer Research Opportunities On Campus

This summer, Prep has two exciting new opportunities for students interested in STEM. Dr. DeFeo and Dr. Kim are launching unique summer courses for those interested in taking their love for science to the next level. 

Dr. DeFeo’s Biomedical and Biotech Enrichment class aims to create a space where you can gain more experience in the lab by performing experiments and completing a research project. In the information session, Dr. DeFeo spoke about his goal for the class to be “fluid and adaptable to what the class enjoys the most.” Dr. DeFeo added that this opportunity was a great way to set the groundwork for any published research you are interested in. Although the class encompasses other aspects, its primary focus is picking, researching, and developing a project around a genetic disease. 

Dr. Kim’s Organic Chemistry Inquiry Class also provides students the opportunity to further their understanding of chemistry. Prospective student Zach Geoghegan told me that the summer course was “a chance to experience what Organic Chemistry will be like in college.” The course is designed for students with experience in chemistry and a desire to pursue a career in the field. 

Both classes have planned field trips for unique learning experiences. Dr. Kim has connected with the University of Maryland and has secured multiple excursions to interact with, learn from, and tour their lab facilities. Dr. DeFeo also spoke about his desire to take the class outside of the classroom for lab opportunities. 

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact Dr. DeFeo or Dr. Kim. The full course descriptions are posted in the summer catalog. Happy learning!
