Research Stories

Research grants

Two graduate students, Meghan Ramick and John Guers, have won $5,000 research grants from the American College of Sports Medicine Foundation to support their doctoral studies.

Graduate Student Research Forum

The UD Graduate Student Research Forum on April 21 will include over 130 presentations, highlighting such topics as new gene sequencing techniques to improve treatment of pediatric cancers, to an evaluation of the impact of public trial gardens on the horticulture industry.

A representative of the program said it is a terrific opportunity to work with basic science and clinical researchers and to get hands-on experience at UD, Delaware State University, Nemours, Christiana Care Health System, Wesley College and Delaware Technical Community College. 

“Whether you’re considering a future career in science or medicine, the skills gained by engaging in research are highly valuable across multiple fields,” the representative said.

Undergraduate researchers in the program participate in a retreat, special seminars, research symposia and poster sessions. 

The program runs from Monday, June 9, through Friday, Aug. 15. For more information and the application, visit this website or contact Rebekah Helton, chair of Delaware INBRE education and professional development core.

INBRE stands for the IDeA Network of Biomedical Research Excellence, a National Institutes of Health-funded program based in Delaware at UD. Biomedical researchers across the state are a part of INBRE.
