Science Can Be for Everyone

October 18, 2016 8:06 PM
A recent article in Nature asked, “Is science only for the rich?” In the United States, writer Jane J. Lee concluded, there are steep challenges for students from lower-income backgrounds who want to pursue science, but there are also positive examples of people who are working to create opportunities for these students—people like Michael Summers.
Summers is Robert E. Meyerhoff Chair for Excellence in Research and Mentoring and University Distinguished Professor of chemistry and biochemistry at UMBC. His lab is nationally and internationally known for engaging students from all backgrounds in high-level, hands-on research from day one, and further supporting them through intensive faculty and peer mentorship.
