To indicate interest in engaging in research with the Biology department, please submit the online Biology Research Interest Form.  Submissions must be received no later than December 1, 2021.

In the online form, students interested in summer fellowships can indicate the faculty research programs that interest them the most. There is no guarantee that students will get into their first choice, as space in faculty labs is limited. Students are not required to contact potential faculty mentors before filling out this form, although they are welcome to do so in order to find out more information.
