STU Offers Students Opportunity in Cancer Research

St. Thomas University’s School of Science, Technology and Engineering Management is giving students with an interest for research, the opportunity to work with faculty members who have extensively published peer-reviewed research articles and reviews as well as books and book chapters. The School is working closely with the Miami-Dade Public School System and South Florida Catholic high schools to get students engaged early on in the field of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). Various research areas include mathematical modeling, physical and organic chemistry, plant biology, neuroscience and cancer research. “Several years ago, research experience was an advantage”, says Dr. Van slambrouck, Assistant Professor of Chemistry and Pharmacist and leader of the program. “Nowadays it has become an expectation from employers. Standing out today means at least one scientific publication, demonstrating a student’s commitment to a single laboratory and a project. It lasts a lifetime.”
