Summer 2024 Research Series: Cell Biology and Microscopy

This early research opportunity is offered by the Center for Developmental Neuroscience and the Department of Biology to high school students, undergraduates, and graduates interested in hands-on research experience in cell biology. Students will learn how to study molecular and cellular components and processes of the cell. The proposed workshop will also provide skills in microscopy. Students will apply these techniques to gain experience in cell biology and lab skills.

Students will receive contact and guidance from the Director/Instructor, technician, postdocs, and graduate students who participate in Summer 2024 research.

• Attend daily meetings with instructor, participate in experiments
• Students will submit a final report
• In addition to gaining valuable experience in research, students will experience college life with other students.

Sessions: The instructor will provide an overview of the lab procedure and its application to cell biological research. Students will be required to understand each of the concepts presented. The students will then perform the procedures according to the lab protocol provided. During the experiment, students will keep detailed notes of their activities.

Director/Instructor: Nicole LaMassa, Adjunct Lecturer •
Eligibility: High school students who have taken a year of biology, undergraduates, graduate current college students
