Two students associated with Great Bay Community College in Portsmouth, Andrew Guilliams, 28 and Michael Fullerton, 29, both of Newmarket, have recently accepted invitations to join the Dartmouth Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) program.

Dartmouth received over 400 applications for this prestigious fellowship. Guilliams and Fullerton were among eight ultimately selected for participation. The program is an intensive summer research training experience designed for college students who are preparing for careers in biomedical research, and runs from June 23 to August 26. ...

Guilliams began his post-secondary education at the University of Florida. After several years of working, he moved to New Hampshire where he took science classes at Great Bay prior to transferring to the University of New Hampshire. He is currently in the Chemical Engineering program at UNH pursuing a bioengineering option. During his fellowship, he will be working with Professor Karl Griswold of Dartmouth's Thayer School of Engineering. Professor Griswold's research focuses on bioengineering of proteins. Through his experience, Gulliams is hoping to hone his interest in research and see if further education at the graduate level is the track he wishes to pursue.
