Doisy Scholars Spend Summer in SLU Labs
Each summer, Saint Louis University hosts the Doisy Scholar program to give undergraduates from SLU and other universities experience conducting laboratory research. Named after Nobel Prize winner and chair of biochemistry at SLU Edward A. Doisy, faculty members from the departments of biochemistry and molecular biology, pharmacology and physiology and pathology mentor students as they conduct research in their laboratories.
In addition to conducting research, students give presentations at the end of the program highlighting their projects, complete team assignments and learn about career paths related to basic and biomedical research. This year, the aspiring scientists visited Cortex, St. Louis’s tech and bioscience research district, and the research and development facility of life science company Millipore-Sigma.
