Location: East Lansing, Michigan
Agency: Michigan State University
Due Date: February 8, 2017
GPA: 3.00
Stipend: 5,250.00
Description: Researchers at Michigan State University extensively utilize model plant organisms to rapidly improve our understanding of plant biochemistry, cellular biology and developmental biology. The summer research program consists of coordinated activities with a variety of participants including guest faculty, secondary school teachers, and undergraduate students. Students will contribute to the project by working in the laboratory alongside their mentors, participating in group meetings and activities, and attend weekly informal seminars and pizza lunches where participants and faculty will interact. At the end of the program, students will present short research project summaries of their work to the full project team. You will have the opportunity to work at Arabidopsis, a laboratory workhorse, a small and fast growing flowering plant whose entire 29,000 gene sequence is completely known. Students will receive a stipend of $5250, housing and meals on campus, plus travel assistance. The program runs from May 18th - July 24th, 2015.
