Student Research

Student Research

All students earning a degree in the Biomolecular Sciences department conduct independent research.  We believe research experiences are critical to understanding science, but have many other benefits as well.  Students engaged in research develop relationships with faculty mentors, engage in student research communities, learn marketable skills, and are more competitive when applying for jobs, graduate programs in science, and in applications for health related programs.  Undergraduates are required to complete at least 2 semesters of research (BMS 390, 491), with the opportunity to continue for additional semesters, and Graduate students take 1-4 credits of research (BMS 591).  You can start investigating research opportunities here, but also attend our weekly research seminars, Friday 2:40-3:40pm.  Seminar titles will be posted each week under “upcoming events”.
