The summer of 2016 proved to be very productive and educational for promising Oakwood University junior, Gregory Darville II.
During the Spring semester, after completing a rigorous and competitive application process, Gregory was chosen to participate in a summer undergraduate research program at the prestigious Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota.
Gregory was selected out of a pool of hundreds of applicants, and was the only contender from Oakwood University for the internship.
While interning at the Mayo Clinic, Gregory conducted research on developing a tool to screen antibodies, and said that participating in this program solidified his desire to enter the medical field.
In his spare time during the summer, Gregory enjoyed going to the gym and mingling with the other students from colleges and universities all over the United States. Upon completion of his matriculation at Oakwood with a bachelor’s degree in biology, he hopes to be accepted into medical school in pursuit of his goal to become a doctor.
