PI for Wesley College: Dr. Malcolm J. D'Souza, Professor of Chemistry
INBRE allows us to offer our Science students the option to do original directed research, working one-on-one with a faculty member during the school year for college credit, and as paid undergraduate research assistants. Participating students have presented their research outcomes at over 250+ National, Regional, and Local Scientific Conferences. Our students have earned 58 National/Regional Awards/Honors, and 48 are co-authors on peer-reviewed journal articles. In addition, several paid internships are available each summer, not only at Wesley College, but also at the partner institutions, which enable students to work in full-time research laboratories using cutting-edge equipment and techniques.
To participate, contact Dr. D'Souza at Malcolm.DSouza(at)wesley.edu or (302) 736-2528.
