Numerous Earlham students have presented their research at recent national and regional meetings as well as a variety of other local sponsored symposia.

Faculty members in the biochemistry program have published in wide variety of peer-reviewed journals and have been funded extramurally by both government and private institutions.

Students have completed internships with such local organizations as, Belden Industries, Cope Environmental Center, Indianapolis Art Museum Conservation Laboratory, Reid Hospital, Richmond Friends School and Wayne County Health Clinic.

Students are encouraged to study abroad. Science faculty members have led semester-long off-campus programs (e.g. Tanzania, England, Oak Ridge, France, and New Zealand) and shorter expeditions during May Term and on Ford/Knight projects (e.g. Peru, Borneo, Bahamas, Galapagos Islands, Nebraska Sandhills, and Yellowstone National Park).

Research is at the heart of the Earlham College Biochemistry experience whether it's during the academic year, full-time during the summer or for an entire semester at Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee. Students have also traveled to other parts of the world (e.g. China and Chile) with faculty to conduct research. Participating in one or more of these programs has certainly been transformative to students.

Earlham College, an independent, residential college, aspires to provide the highest-quality undergraduate education in the liberal arts, including the sciences, shaped by the distinctive perspectives of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers).
