Ten Indiana Wesleyan University STEM students had the opportunity to spend a day exploring what life as a research scientist is like at Eli Lilly.  The experience included learning the ins and outs of drug discovery, the opportunity to spend time with four Lilly research scientists, and an in-depth tour of Lilly’s facilities.  The aim of this formative experience was to motivate young STEM majors and to help sharpen their goals towards entering STEM careers.  This experience is part of Indiana Wesleyan University’s STEM program funded by a National Science Foundation S-STEM award.  The aim of the grant from the National Science Foundation grant is to provide scholarships to assist academically talented students to earn B.S. degrees in biology, chemistry, or physics from Indiana Wesleyan University, as well as to provide supportive co-curricular pillars that work in synergy to increase student success in entering the STEM workforce.
