Hello there! My name is Lauren DeLong, and I'm a Junior Biology Major with Chemistry and Mathematics minors. I love doing research, and I aspire to attain my Ph.D. in Molecular Biology and become a professor. I am the president of SU's Chapter of The American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, a club that discusses scientific literature and holds STEM outreach events for children. I recently completed a summer internship program at the Laboratory of Cardiovascular Science at the National Institute on Aging, in which I researched a model for Sinoatrial Nodel Cells. At SU, I've done research with Dr. Les Erickson and Dr. Jennifer Nyland. If you're looking for a career in the STEM fields, I'd love to talk.
I've presented my research at a variety of places, including Chicago, IL, Memphis, TN, and Boston, MA, the last of which was entirely sponsored by the Honors College. Getting involved with Honors is one of the most rewarding decisions I've made and continue to make. I am on the writing staff of The Saunterer, the Honors College newsletter, have taken more than the required honors classes, and I'm the VP for the Honors Student Association, which plans trips to the Humane Society, local community soup kitchens, and New York City. We also plan Holiday events and Professional Workshops!
Lastly, I'm in Alpha Sigma Tau sorority, a resident assistant for the sophomore Honors LLC, and have studied abroad in Roatan, Honduras. Please feel free to contact me - I'd love to meet you!
