Description: New discoveries that influence our health and life are being made in the biomedical sciences at an ever-increasing rate. To provide undergraduates interested in a biomedical research career with an opportunity for firsthand knowledge of how new hypothesis are formulated and new data are obtained and interpreted in major research laboratories, the Department of Physiology and Biophysics offers summer research trainee ships to approximately 10-12 undergraduate students. The enrolled students select a laboratory and work together with a faculty member to obtain hands-on research experience in biomedical sciences. The program is designed for outstanding students with majors in biology, chemistry, physics or related disciplines. Students will carry out a research project under the close guidanceof a faculty member during the summer months (8 to 10 weeks). Stipends or national fellowships are provided, and on-campus housing is available. In general, the program accepts students who have finished their junior year. Exceptions are possible for advanced and talented sophomores.
