Our department conducts research in cutting edge areas of science in developmental/cell biology, neurophysiology, genetics, biochemistry, microbiology, ecology, and molecular biology. With our student-focused learning, we pride ourselves on the ability of our faculty to provide our undergraduate students with individualized attention. We emphasize laboratory training and research for our students. These research experiences frequently lead to publications in which the undergraduate is a coauthor with the faculty mentor.
Faculty will encourage and challenge you in your lab classes—where the student-to-faculty ratio is 12:1— allowing them to be directly involved in your learning experience. Opportunities will be abundant, and you'll learn science as science is practiced.
As a sophomore or junior, apply to the Summer Research Program where you can direct your own research project for 10 weeks and be paid a stipend. You'll participate in journal clubs, and career and bioethics workshops. At the end of the program you will present your work at a symposium and poster session along with other departments and universities.
