Samuel Montgomery, SROP Scholar

Samuel Montgomery

Samuel Montgomery was a participant in the Summer Research Opportunities Program (SROP) in the summer of 2013. Though he was initially hesitant to apply for the program, Samuel found that through it he was able to gain the attributes and confidence needed to pursue a career in science.

Aside from the many professional development programs the program offers, SROP allowed Samuel to work in a neuroscience lab with globally-recognized neuroscientist Dr. Randy Nelson and get hands on experience working with rodents and drugs to carry out his summer project, “How Dim Light at Night Effects Autonomic Control of the Heart.”  After expressing an interest in medical school to Dr. Nelson, his mentor pulled some strings and arranged for Samuel to shadow two thoracic surgeons. The program also gave Samuel a chance to interact with other students that had similar goals.

Samuel believes that the SROP program has given him a strong foundation in research and the confidence to continue as a scholar.
