SUNY Cobleskill’s Analysa Frederick Selected for Research Fellowship at SUNY Upstate Medical University

Senior Biotechnology student Analysa Frederick will spend her summer conducting biomedical research alongside faculty and graduate students at SUNY Upstate Medical University as one of just eight SUNY undergrads admitted to the prestigious Summer Research Fellowship Program.

The intensive 10-week program pairs undergraduate students with faculty to help formulate their own proposal, carry out research, and write a paper with the possibility of being published.

Throughout the program, students attend research seminars, present and participate in a student journal club, present their work, and participate in discussions on alternative careers in research and how to apply to graduate school.

The program runs from June 5, 2017 through August 11. Each fellow is given a $3,000 stipend plus housing.


“I’m very excited to be able to attend the SURF Program at Upstate,” Frederick said. “I’ll have the opportunity to learn and adapt in a new lab environment and get much more undergraduate research experience. Hopefully the new techniques and skills I learn in the program will be applicable to the research I conduct next semester at Cobleskill.”

At SUNY Cobleskill, Frederick has been researching the genetics of lupulin production in hops, which gives beer its characteristic flavor during the brewing process. She will return in the fall to finish her senior year.

After that, she plans to attend graduate school, ideally a PhD program in genetics, to begin a career researching genetic diseases.
