Undergraduate Students

The mission of our training program in molecular biophysics is to enable students of the physical and mathematical sciences from colleges with limited research opportunities to address important problems in biology. The summer undergraduate program offers cross-disciplinary research experience in leading laboratories.


The program is open to students who have completed up to three years of studies, focusing on those who have completed their first or second year of study, with majors in chemistry, computer science, engineering, mathematics, or physics, among others, and who are in good standing in their home institutions. We do not encourage applications from students majoring in biology. Competitive applicants should have a good GPA, especially in the field of their major. Applicants must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents. We welcome applications of students who are from groups that are historically underrepresented in graduate education.

All applications and inquiries are handled through our website.

*Note regarding Summer 2013:

We anticipate running the program in the summer of 2013. Our application for 2013 funding is currently under review by the NSF.

We encourage applications by our closing date of 1/31/2013.
