John Filosa ’15
Project: E. coli bacteria, stress on those organisms, and genetic recombination
Researcher: John Filosa’15
Mentors: Dr. Anthony and Mr. White
This research project was by far one of the coolest experiences from my Sallies career. Both Dr. Anthony and Mr. White were so helpful and knowledgeable throughout my entire project. While this project may not make a substantial contribution to the scientific community, it gave me the experience of taking a research project from brainstorming through all the complications and setbacks to completion. I can–without a doubt–say that this experience gave me an edge over other applicants applying to college. I am so grateful for this opportunity because it sparked a strong interest in pursuing research in the future.
