FSU Scholars Attends the Annual Dr. E.E. Just "Science Day" at the Medical University of South Carolina

Science DayThe Fayetteville State University Research Initiative for Scientific Enhancement (FSU-RISE) Program sponsored a trip to the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston, South Carolina on February 26 & 27 to attend the Dr. Ernest Everett Just (E.E. Just) Science Day.  Thirty-eight FSU students, including 16 FSU-RISE Scholars and Dr. Raynor, attended the event.  The E. E. Just Symposium is held every year during Black Heritage month in February in celebration of the birth and extraordinary legacy of Dr. Just in the promotion of scientific research.  Born in Charleston, SC and a foundering member of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc., Dr.  Just was known in the scientific community for his scientific publications and his work as an outstanding African American biologist of the twentieth century.  A highlight of the Science Day event was the opportunity for students to network with students from other colleges and tour six colleges at MUSC including medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, nursing, health professions and graduate studies. Several RISE scholars have made applications to the Summer Undergraduate Research Program sponsored by MUSC.  Jessica Ross, a former FSU-RISE scholar, is current enrolled at MUSC in a Ph.D. program.
