RESEARCH OPPORTUNITIES in BioMed: The Projects Collection
The Research Projects Collection is a searchable database containing information about the research activities of BioMed Faculty (both basic sciences and hospital based) who have expressed willingness to sponsor student projects for credit via BIOL 1950/1960 (see below). These projects may be used towards the various Biology concentration programs, and are required by some of them. These also may form the basis of senior HONORS theses.
DIRECTED RESEARCH/INDEPENDENT STUDY COURSES
Each year, hundreds of students conduct independent study/directed research projects for course credit, via BIOL 1950/1960. These projects are mentored by BioMed faculty. Projects may serve in fulfillment of ScB program requirements; as research leading to Honors; as Senior Capstone projects for Health and Human Biology; or as experiential projects carried out by any level of Biology concentrator or by non-concentrators.
STEPS: Students must seek a faculty sponsor, and formulate a project plan. The Research Projects Collection is a main starting point.
