In the fields of biology, chemistry, computer science, engineering and physics, 11 Northwest Nazarene University professors guided 36 students through a summer of research this last June, July and August. One of those projects involved the battle against MRSA (pronounced Mursa)–the super bacteria.
Working on significant research in the sciences under faculty active in their fields is a unique opportunity for undergraduate students at NNU. These research projects are made possible by grants from foundations that recognize the potential of NNU students and faculty to make significant contributions to the body of knowledge in their fields and to improve the lives of people with their discoveries.
The NNU Doceo Center exists to inspire personalized learning in pre-school through college-level classrooms by use of innovative practices in education. “The mission of the Center is the same as that of the university,” Kellerer explains. “We’re seeking transformation both on and off campus.”
Whether you are going to become a doctor or a computer scientist, NNU offers an invaluable opportunity to gain real research experience in your field through the academic tradition of research fellowships.
