Opportunities to participate in exciting research projects are available as part of the Center for Molecular Medicine and Genetics SURP. The research program is designed to provide sophomore and junior undergraduate students with the opportunity to participate in research in the areas of basic, computational, translational and clinical science, as well as experience in presenting data to peers and colleagues.
Areas of study include: cell cycle regulation, chromosome structure and function, gene regulation, molecular neurobiology, differentiation and development, molecular biology of cancer, genetic engineering, genetics of cardiovascular diseases, computational biology, and molecular evolution.
Students will be expected to conduct research at approximately 40 hours per week in a research project with a Center faculty member as well as to attend weekly research seminars. Students participating in additional weekday courses during the summer at Wayne State or other institutions are in general not eligible for this research program. A stipend of $2,500 will be provided for the 12-week program.
