In the fall of 2010, Dr. Shumaker developed an internship application and coordinated a faculty review committee composed of UWA faculty members from the biology and chemistry departments. In April, the review committee selected students Dantria Grace and Christen Nelms for participation in the internship.

These two students traveled with Dr. Shumaker on June 1st to start their 10-week summer research experience at PSU. They attended The Huck Institutes of Life Sciences Techniques in Molecular Biology Workshop from June 13-14 and then began their research. Their hard work culminated in the presentation of the poster "Ozone Stress Response in Northern Red Oak" at the American Society for Plant Biologist Meeting held in Minneapolis from August 6-10th. They returned home in mid-August to resume classes at UWA.
