Putting their research skills to work

Twenty students had career-building summers conducting medical research in the Lake Forest College-Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science Summer Fellows program.

The 2019 group of Summer Fellows are the latest Foresters to participate in this unique partnership between an undergraduate school and medical school, a partnership that began in 2009.


Transfer student Ellen Szostak ’21 achieved her goal to conduct research after just one semester at Lake Forest College. Szostak left a 40,000-student state school to attend Lake Forest College in spring semester 2019. Just two months into her first semester at Lake Forest, the neuroscience major landed a research fellowship in the psychology department at RFUMS.
