Prerequisite(s): BIOL 160 /BIOL 160A , BIOL 161 /BIOL 161A . Permission of the instructor is required to register for this course.
Students will conduct cutting-edge authentic biological research while working closely with a faculty mentor. In a small group setting, students will engage in-depth in the scientific method by analyzing the scientific literature, formulating hypotheses, performing hands-on experiments, analyzing experimental data, and presenting their findings to the broader scientific community. The research topic is dependent on the expertise of the faculty instructor/ mentor and may include research in neuroscience, cell biology, or microbiology among other topics. In order to conduct authentic research, students must commit six hours per week for lab work and one additional hour per week for lecture/discussions. Total commitment is seven hours per week; three hours are regularly scheduled meeting/research times, four hours of additional time to be coordinated with instructor.
