Students will apply to research laboratories (up to three) in the Biology Department. This year, we have 10 laboratories available for you (brief description of each lab available below). After a successful interview with the faculty member, students will spend few hours per week (1-4 hours depending on the agreement between the student and the professor) in the lab for interacting with the professor and graduate students in the laboratory.
Students are not expected to perform experiments nor do lab chores (e.g. dish washing). If the professor permits, students may assist a simple task assisting the on-going project.
