BCHM 481-486 - Biochemistry Independent Research or Internship


Semester Hours: One to Six
This course is designed to give experience in formal research methods, including literature search, laboratory work, record keeping, and reporting results. Each student is associated with a specific research project, during which the student works closely with the faculty and other researchers in the chemistry/biology departments. Alternatively, eligible biochemistry undergraduate majors can participate in the research program sponsored by the National Science Foundation (NSF-REU). Program participants will carry out a research project under the direction of a faculty member at one of its REU (Research Experience for Undergraduates) sites which are departments of large universities participating in the NSF funded research programs. Students enrolled in the program are granted stipends and, in many cases, assistance with housing and travel. Students may also complete a summer internship at a company such as Monsanto, Pfizer, Sigma-Aldrich, Covidien/Mallinckrodt Pharmaceuticals or Chemir Analytical Services. Upon completion of the research, students will present a poster or oral presentation of their work for students and faculty in the chemistry/biology program. A total of six hours may be applied toward graduation.
Term Offered: On Demand

Prerequisites: Junior or senior standing and consent of instructor.
