The Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, with financial support from the National Science Foundation, offers qualified undergraduates from throughout the country the opportunity to conduct research projects in biochemistry and molecular biology for ten weeks each summer.

This program allows students to participate in active research in a wide range of exciting & interesting projects at the very edge of our current knowledge in areas including protein structure and function, transcriptional mechanisms, molecular neurobiology, regulation of gene expression in a chromatin context, cancer biology, plant biology, embryonic development, diabetes, cytoskeleton dynamics, and virology. Each student is assigned to a specific faculty member's research laboratory, where the student works closely with the faculty mentor, post-doctoral associates and graduate students.
