The Biological Interactions Summer Research Program seeks mentors for an intensive research experience for undergraduate students from underrepresented groups to engage in full time research for 10 weeks during the summer. The program recruits diverse students from across the United States to participate. Students receive financial support and participate in professional development to prepare them for graduate school and a career in STEM. The research theme, “Biological Interactions: Phenotype, Genotype, and Environment” encompasses a broad array of investigations into the influence of environment and genotype on phenotype. Research projects that explore phenotypes from any angle and in any model system are welcomed in the program.
The Summer 2021 program is currently slated to be held virtually. If you are interested in mentoring a remote student this year, please fill out this form by January 15, 2021. Program Director Dr. Amber Smith will follow up with additional information.
Please contact Amber Smith with any questions.
