Interested freshman have the opportunity to conduct real research in the biological/biomedical sciences through the NU Bioscientist program.
Here is how it works:
- Interested students apply online by the first week of June before starting their freshman year.
- NU Bioscientist students take two specially designed courses their freshman year to provide background and prepare for doing research.
- Students then work with a laboratory and mentor for independent study during the summer following freshman year.
For more information including how to get involved, see the NU Bioscientist website.
The Searle Center co-directs the NU Bioscientist program with the Northwestern University Ventures in Biology Education (nuViBE). The NU Bioscientist program is free of charge.
