Publication Date: 2/21/2007

The Merck/AAAS Undergraduate Science Research Program has awarded Rhodes biology and chemistry faculty -- Drs. Loretta Jackson-Hayes, Terry Hill, Darlene Loprete and Mary Miller -- a $60,000 grant to support student research. The award fosters interactions between chemistry and biology departments and provides stipends over the next three summers to support students who will work in these professors’ laboratories.

The grant also supports a visiting young investigator each year to present a seminar and meet with students interested in graduate school.
