Led by Mark Johnson, Associate Professor of Biology in the Department of Molecular Biology, Cell Biology, & Biochemistry, this ten week laboratory research program gives rising second and third year Brown University undergraduates a ten-week summer research experience on topics at the cutting edge of biological and biomedical research. Students work in multidisciplinary groups of eight, with each group working collaboratively on aspects of a single research goal. A short list of current projects includes:
- Disease Hunters: Modeling Human Diseases in Drosophila
- Genome Explorers : Elucidating Forces Shaping Genome Evolution
- New Models for Drug Discovery and Toxicity Testing Reducing the use of Animals in Research
- Dissecting Genes and Environment in Aging
APPLICATION DEADLINE is February 15, 2014. Application deadline has been extended to February 19, 2014.
Application can be found here!
All projects are directed by tenured faculty who have a personal interest in the research. For more information, please contact Linda Walsh.
The following must to be completed before summer 2014:
- Advanced Placement Biology or Biol0200 Foundations of Living Systems
- At least one course beyond the introductory course in a related area such as Biology/Biochem (e.g. Genetics, Biochemistry, Cell and Molecular Biology) or courses in physical science, engineering, mathematics, or computer sciences.
