VTBMS 2990 - Undergraduate Research in Biomedical Sciences


Fall, spring, summer. 1-4 credits, variable. Letter grades only.

Permission of instructor required.


Mentored research apprenticeship program designed to give laboratory experience in applied epidemiology to qualified unmatriculated high school students (participating in Cornell Summer College) or Cornell underclassmen. 

Students are placed in a research laboratory with a designed project under the direct supervision of a research associate (upper-level graduate student, post-doc, or faculty member).   Students are graded on preparation participation in laboratory academic life and appropriate acquisition of techniques.  At the end of the six-week session, they are expected to give a brief (15 to 20 minute) oral presentation on their work and submit a manuscript in a form suitable for publication.  The faculty director of the laboratory has ultimate responsibility for evaluating each student’s work and assigning the grade.
