You will have many opportunities on campus to team up with professors on cutting-edge research projects.
Each year, the science summer research program supports dozens of students doing full-time research on topics that include the effects of pollution on Great Lakes waterbirds, characterizing the gut bacteria of cephalote ants, and how HIV remains as a latent reservoir in resting T helper cells in patients who have undergone antiretroviral therapy.
Biology professors receive extensive funding from sources such as the National Science Foundation, National Institutes of Health, and the US Fish and Wildlife Service to support research. This allows them to involve students in these projects as paid assistants during the summer and throughout the year. Explore their projects and opportunities to get involved below.
