      Kelman Scholars Program

      Description:

      The program is open to all rising sophomore, junior, and senior undergraduate students with a demonstrated interest to explore the biological sciences through the field of plant pathology.  Plant pathology is the study of 1) the biological agents (eg pathogens) and the environmental conditions that cause diseases in plants; 2) the mechanisms by which these biotic and abiotic agents produce disease in plants; 3) the interactions between the disease-causing agents and the plant, and 4) the methods of preventing or managing diseases and alleviating the damage they cause.

      Dr. Kelman believed that the complex interactions between microbes and plant hosts made plant pathology a stimulating and versatile biological discipline that could attract diverse talent into the discipline responsible for helping mitigate crop loss due to plant diseases. Research projects for Kelman Scholars can range from assessing novel chemistries to managing emerging pathogens (e.g. viruses, bacteria, fungi, nematodes) on important crops in North Carolina to collecting, isolating, purifying, and sequencing the genomes of these pathogens to pinpoint the underlying genetic factors that lead to their ability to cause disease.

      The Department of Entomology and Plant Pathology values diverse perspectives and life experiences and we particularly encourage students from underrepresented minority groups and from colleges with limited research opportunities to apply. Prior research experience is not required. NC State is an equal opportunity institution and prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, sex, disability, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, and veteran status.

      Program Activities & Expectations:

      • The program kicks off with a one-day introductory boot camp, where participants will be introduced to faculty and their research programs in the Department of Entomology and Plant Pathology. All participants will also meet the department head and associate head.
      • During the boot camp, there will be one session dedicated to program logistics and expectations, and a timeline highlighting major milestones for program completion will be discussed.
      • Attend biweekly lunches where two faculty members in the department will discuss their research and their path into science and plant pathology.
      • Full-time, 10-week time commitment (end of May 2024 – beginning of August 2024)
      • All participants will be required to be present for the duration of the 10-week summer program.
