Student Research

Students are able to get hands-on experience in the research labs by enrolling in BIOC-39000.

As a result, they are able to travel to present their work, as well, as to present locally.

Attendance is strongly recommended for Biochem majors to the informational meeting each semester.

  • Discuss research opportunities:
    • Biology/Biochemistry faculty research.
    • Chemistry/Biochemistry: see the faculty page.


Research Opportunities:

Are you pondering your research options for spring, summer, or next fall? As a Biochemistry major, you have a lot of fantastic options for research.

To help you find your best fit, you should consider two upcoming events:

  • Chemistry Department Mixer: Thursday, November 30th @ 5 PM.
  • Biology 302 Jr. Research Talks: Tuesday – Thursday, December 12-14th @ 4 PM, CNS 112

 These casual conversations with faculty can help you consider all of your options quickly.

Don't forget about satisfying your Inquiry-based lab requirement! You can complete this through research with a faculty (as BIOC 390) or the Experimental Biochemistry Lab.

  • To register for BIOC 390, you must

 (1) Collect a mixer card from Jamie (CNS 364) or at the mixer.

(2) Read the project descriptions on the faculty pages--see links above.

(3) Discuss the research projects with at least 4 faculty. (Faculty from both the Chemistry and Biology Departments are available.)

(4) Have the faculty members sign your form to show that you have considered a breadth of research.  

(5) Confirm a spot in your top lab choice with a final signature and registration form to Paula (Chemistry) or Nancy (Biology).

(6) Return completed form to Jamie Ellis (CNS 364).  This must be done PRIOR to trying to register for your preferred section.
