Bridging Disciplines: Navigating Successful 21st Century Careers in Biomedical Science

March 11–16, 2018

Undergraduates at colleges and universities beyond their second year of study in science or engineering are invited to apply. Other majors are encouraged to inquire.

This is a one-week course for undergraduates interested in learning about interdisciplinary approaches to biomedical research. During the course, students will learn interdisciplinary communication skills and be introduced to concepts and tools that will help them work together across disciplines. Then, students will rotate through multiple research laboratories working with animal models to discover underlying mechanisms of regeneration, tissue repair, or wound healing.

Using these resources and experiences, small teams of students will tackle a complex problem in biomedicine, developing goals, strategies, and solutions. They will present their research to a panel of interdisciplinary experts as a culminating activity for the course.

Tuition, housing and meals are funded through private contributions to MDI Biological Laboratory.
