A summer at Brookhaven National Laboratory

June 8, 2011

Beverly Jose Agtuca, a freshman biotechnology major at the SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry, is spending the summer of 2011 as an intern at Brookhaven National Laboratory on Long Island.

Through the U.S. Department of Energy’s Summer Undergraduate Science Internship program, she is working with Dr. Richard Ferrieri, a chemist known for his work in applying radiotracer techniques, originally developed for the study of the human brain, to the study of plants. Beverly is learning lab techniques this summer and will return to  Brookhaven next summer to put those skills to use on a research project of her own.

She will blog regularly through the summer, sharing her experiences as an undergraduate at one of the nations’s most prestigious scientific centers.
