Students conduct summer research through early identification program

Jose Sanchez (right), a senior at the University of Puerto Rico at Mayaguez, worked in Washington University’s Laboratory for Magnetic Resonance this summer under the direction of Mark S. Conradi, PhD (left), professor of physics in Arts & Sciences. Sanchez participated in WUSTL’s Summer Research Early Identification Program (SR-EIP) through the Leadership Alliance, a consortium of 32 higher education institutions. The SR-EIP offers undergraduates interested in pursuing a PhD or MD/PhD the opportunity to work for 10 weeks under the guidance of a faculty or research mentor at one of the participating Leadership Alliance institutions. The SR-EIP encourages students from groups traditionally underrepresented in the sciences, social sciences and humanities to consider research careers in academia, business or the public sector. Five WUSTL faculty served as mentors to five students this summer. As part of his all-expenses-paid internship, Sanchez helped design and construct a sample spinner for a Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectrometer. For more information on SR-EIP, visit
