Summer Research Database

The Summer Research Database has been updated. You can spend your summer in a world class lab doing cutting edge research. Many of these summer research programs are paid.  If you are considering going to graduate school or medical school then this is a wonderful opportunity to increase your skills.


This past November, 16 CASE students, juniors and seniors from the MARC and RISE programs attended the Annual Biomedical Research Conference for Minority Students (ABRCMS) in San Antonio Texas.  These students represented some of the brightest students here at Brooklyn College studying science and engaged in innovative research both here on campus and while visiting other universities during the summer.

ABRCMS  is the largest research conference of its kind.   Our students attend every year and we have had a good track record of bringing back winning posters.  This year was no different, two of our MARC students won at ABRCMS.  Diandra Smith, a chemistry major here at Brooklyn College, won in the neuroscience division for her work during the summer with Dr. Damien Pearse at the University of Miami on spinal cord injury.  Diandra currently works in Dr. Lesley Davenport’s lab here at the Brooklyn College campus. Nadrienne Pinnock, a psychology major here at Brooklyn College, won in the Social and Behavioral Science division, for her work with Dr. Augustine Osman’s lab at the University of Texas in San Antonia where she worked on shame related responses.  Nadrienne works in Dr. Elizabeth Chua’s lab here at Brooklyn College.

We want to say congratulations to our winners Diandra and Nadrienne, and also to say that we are very proud of all of our students who attended ABRCMS.  These students worked hard not just maintaining their good grades but also conducting research in faculty labs here on our campus during the school year and also giving up their summer to travel to other universities to conduct research.
