Summer Undergraduate Research Experience in Engineering Mechanobiology


View this Opportunity's Website 


Academic Level:
Undergraduates - First Year
Undergraduates - Sophomore
Undergraduates - Junior
Undergraduates - Senior

Description:
The Center for Engineering MechanoBiology (CEMB) seeks motivated undergraduate students for a summer research program. Students have the opportunity to participate in a 10-week, on-campus program at one of two (2) locations: the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia or Washington University in St. Louis. Many projects are interdisciplinary and provide opportunities to develop research skills in the physical sciences, biological sciences, and engineering. Students develop practical research skills: collaborating, designing experiments, collecting and analyzing data, and communicating results. Other aspects of the program complement the lab experience and are oriented toward professional development and career skills: seminars, journal clubs, and professional and career workshops, including training in ethics, innovation, and technology transfer.
