Interns Sarah Belfer (2019) and Natalie Salman (2019) learn how to analyze floral volatiles on a gas chromatograph at Dr. Diego Salazar’s chemistry lab at FIU.

During the summer months, MBC offers two paid internships for students interested in botanical careers.  These positions are generously funded by Dr. Peter R. Jennings and are designed for students interested in botanical careers, providing opportunities for hands-on research and study with access to one of the most diverse collections of palms and cycads in the world.
