Carthage undergraduate research

August 11, 2018

Carlee Dawson of Oconomowoc and Austin Weber of Reeseville were among more than 40 students selected to conduct research with faculty as part of the 2018 Summer Undergraduate Research Experience at Carthage College in Kenosha.

SURE students spend 10 weeks on campus doing original research full time with a faculty mentor. They receive a stipend, on-campus housing, a meal plan and a research budget. Dawson participated in a biology project titled “Development of Fluorescent Uveal Melanoma Cell Lines for Tumor Transplantation Assays in Zebrafish” with Professor Andrea Henle through a grant from Ancell Corporation.

Weber participated in a space science project to develop a small satellite (CubeSat) for the Canopy Near-infrared Observing Project with Professor Kevin Crosby. This project is supported by a grant from the Wisconsin Space Grant Consortium.
