As an upperclassman, you’ll have the opportunity to take part in ongoing research, both here on campus and through research internships at universities and institutions across the country. Recent science and health majors at Seton Hill have participated in research projects at the Mayo Clinic (cell biology), Ohio State University (HIV) and Johns Hopkins University (prostrate cancer).
Students, led by faculty members, also are involved in research right here on the Hill. Current and recently-completed research projects include:
- A multi-year study on the response of individuals with deficiencies in DNA repair pathways to potential toxins. This opportunity came as a result of a Seton Hill contract with IMS Government Solutions, the Department of Defense, and the United States Air Force.
- Ongoing discovery and analysis of new phages through the Howard Hughes Medical Institute's SEA-PHAGES project. (Phages are important to researchers in part because it is believed that they might offer an alternative to antibiotics.)
- A multi-year research collaboration with the Integrative Cardiac Health Project at Walter Reed to study health behaviors of college students.
