Mesa Science Associates’ Former Summer Intern Scores Big for Summer of 2020 Educational Opportunity

Company’s former intern accepts 2020 summer position in Hamburg, Germany.

Mr. Michael Mesa, President, and CEO of Mesa Science Associates (MSA) is pleased to announce today, February 20, 2020, that former MSA summer intern, Mr. Peyton Coady, has been offered and has accepted a 2020 summer position in Hamburg Germany. Mr. Coady was presented the opportunity through the RISE Program at the University of Hamburg to work with UV-Lithography to study neuronal growth in a confined space. Peyton is thrilled and excited at this appointment and the Mesa Team is equally excited for and proud of Mr. Coady.

Peyton, who is a student at James Madison University, spent the summer of 2019 working at Mesa Science Associates in Frederick Maryland as a summer intern and research assistant under the guidance of Mesa CSO Kenneth Dretchen Ph.D. His summer assignment was to find the origins of the clinical dose of epinephrine currently used in the treatment of anaphylaxis. After weeks of online detective work and numerous visits to the National Library of Medicine, Peyton traced the source to a laboratory in 1914. Peyton will soon collaborate with Dr. Dretchen on a paper outlining his research.

Dr. Dretchen was pleased to help Peyton with letters of recommendation and strong advice on applications in his search for overseas summer work. Dr. Dretchen stated that” Peyton was a true asset during his short stint at MSA, and we hope to see him again soon.”

Mesa Science Associates is developing a reputation for acquiring and supporting high-quality summer interns. The MSA team recently helped a former intern advance his education by paving the way to an advanced degree opportunity at Georgetown University.

Mesa Science Associates is a Frederick based consulting and pharmaceutical product development company with offices and a laboratory located in the Frederick Innovation and Technology Center in Frederick, Maryland.
