Julia Goeckel of Clinton, SC was one of seventeen Presbyterian College students selected to conduct research as a 2012 PC Summer Fellow. During her fellowship, Goeckel researched the “Microscopic Characterization of Maize Leaves Using Founders of the NAM Population.”
“After taking many courses for my major, I’ve realized how much I’ve enjoyed learning about plants, and I chose my topic to further educate myself about the anatomy of maize,” said Goeckel.
Upon graduating this fall, Goeckel plans to attend graduate school en route to earning a PhD in Plant Pathology.
The PC Summer Fellows (PCSF) Program is a research program that allows students to work with professors during the summer. The program is intended for motivated students to gain research experience with direct faculty mentoring.
