Summer Research Experience for Undergraduates in Molecular BiosciencesLocation: Fort Collins
Agency: Colorado State University
Due Date: February 1, 2017
Description: The Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, offers qualified undergraduates from throughout the country the opportunity to conduct research projects in biochemistry and molecular biology for ten weeks each summer, from May 26, 2015 – July 30, 2015. This program allows students to participate in active research in a wide range of 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. You will learn how to formulate and test hypotheses, how to problem-solve and troubleshoot, and how to use state-of-the-art techniques and instrumentation including analytical ultracentrifugation and X-ray crystallography. You can participate in the informal meetings of all program participants to exchange information on the research being done and to discuss areas of biochemistry/molecular biology that a particular interest and excitement. There are also weekly meetings at which various scientists describe the latest advances in their own research or career opportunities in biomedical or biotechnology fields. At the end of the internship you will participate in a mini-symposium and present a poster/report. Participants in the 10-week program are provided $5,000 stipends, housing in nearby apartments, and $1,700 for food, plus $600 for travel support.
