Description: Integrated Biological Sciences Summer Research Program (IBS-SRP)
The Program: May 27th- August 2nd, 2014 Application Deadline: February 15th, 2014

The Institute for Biology Education at the University of Wisconsin-Madison invites junior and senior undergraduate students interested in research careers in the biological sciences to participate in the Integrated Biological Sciences Summer Research Program (IBS-SRP). As part of the program, students do full-time research for 10 weeks with a faculty member in one of eight disciplinary areas:

    Biochemistry/Biophysics
    Bioenergy
    Cellular and Molecular Biology
    Computational Biology & Biostatistics
    Ecology, Plants, and Environmental Systems
    Molecular & Environmental Toxicology
    Neurobiology
    Virology

The eight disciplinary areas are connected through a seminar series highlighting major themes in biology, science writing, preparation for graduate school, and biological sciences careers. The major themes are:

• evolution
• pathways and transformations of energy and matter in biological systems
• information flow, exchange and storage in biological systems
• structure and function
• systems biology

At the end of the program, students give an oral presentation of their research results and write a final research report that is published in a program journal.
