Calvin is a place where your biology major could lead to discovering new resources for individuals with rare diseases. Every summer, a number of students have the chance to work with the two professors leading this project. Join biology professor Amy Wilstermann and chemistry professor Rachael Baker in supporting patients who have fewer medical resources.

Your role

As a student, you’re invited to collaborate with your professors and classmates from other disciplines to advance rare disease research. This is a unique opportunity for a few reasons:

  1. You’ll be able to apply what you’re learning in your classrooms to a project that will affect real people.
  2. You’ll be able to use your skills to meet a need in an under-researched area.
  3. You’ll collaborate with students from a variety of disciplines, which will help you share your knowledge and gain new insights.
  4. You’ll receive guided instruction from professors who are at the top of their field.
