Since summer of 2012, THBD has sponsored the Research Scholars Program to bring elite science and engineering students from around the nation to Temple. A total of 19 students have participated in the program and worked in research labs at Baylor Scott & White, Veterans Administration of Central Texas, and Texas A&M Health Science Center. Research topics available in Temple include:

Molecular Medicine
Clinical Sciences

The 2017 intern students are:

Name Major University
Brittany Bass Biological Science Texas A&M
Mary-Catherine Clark Microbiology Texas A&M
Erin DiFranco Biology Villanova
Srishti Mathur Neuroscience and Biology UT Dallas
Javier Zaragoza Exercise Physiology UMHB
Lars Kuslich* Biomedical Engineering Texas A&M

*Lars is in the Texas A&M Master’s of Engineering and Regulatory Certificate Program. This internship is his last requirement prior to receiving his Master’s degree in BME.

We are pleased to have such a high caliber of students in our internship program, and hope that they someday return to Temple to help build and grow the biotech industry in our City.
