A biology, biochemistry and molecular biology, and music triple major from Allentown, Justin Weilnau ’13 is also lead author on a recent paper published in the Journal of Applied Toxicology describing work undertaken by LVC’s interdisciplinary team of chemists and biologists.

“Justin is a great example of how research can be really important,” Dr. Courtney Lappas, assistant professor of biology, said. “Justin started working with me the summer after his freshman year, so he got started early. He has worked on a couple of projects, and been a co-author on two different papers.”

Weilnau is applying to doctoral programs in biomedicine, and Lappas believes his work at LVC will serve him well there.

“I’ve seen him over the years as he’s worked in the lab,” she said. “He’s learned how to ask good questions, and he’s attained the skills he needs to answer them. I think more importantly he knows that with research, 90 percent of the time it doesn’t work. What’s great with Justin is that when things don’t work, he’s able to analyze what that means. He’s gotten creative in his approaches and understands that if something doesn’t work, that’s not necessarily a negative, but something we can learn from. That’s something that students don’t often get in the classroom.”
