Undergraduate Student Fellowships
View this Opportunity's Website
Each summer, over 40 undergraduates from around the United States participate in a research fellowship at MDIBL. Undergraduate students work in the laboratory of an MDIBL investigator on an independent project designed by the student and their mentor. Laboratory training can include techniques in molecular biology, physiology, and bioinformatics. Projects are wide-ranging and could include the comparative study of a laboratory animal (zebrafish, roundworm, sea urchin, etc.), cultured cells, and biological tissue preparations. While most projects are laboratory-based, some include a field component. In pursuing their independent research project, students attend weekly seminars given by MDIBL scientists and invited speakers from other institutions discussing a variety of topics in the biological and environmental sciences.
Undergraduate research fellowships are 8 - 10 weeks long, from early June to early August.Program Materials:This Program can be Described by:
