Summer Course in Biophysics – University of North Carolina

Tuesday, February 15th, 2011

Are your undergraduate students looking for an interdisciplinary summer research opportunity? Consider the Biophysical Society Summer Course
(http://www.biophysics.org/ProfessionalDevelopment/Education/SummerCourse/tabid/898/Default.aspx ), a 12-week scholarship program that introduces undergraduate minority students, disadvantaged students and students with disabilities to the field of biophysics.* Hosted by the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, the program includes lectures, seminars, lab work, team-building activities, and field trips.
The Course is designed to reflect a graduate-level research program. Upon successful completion of the Course, students receive 3 course credits toward an undergraduate degree. All tuition and fees during the Course are covered, and participants receive a stipend for living expenses throughout the summer.

The 2013 Summer Course in Biophysics will take place May 15 – August 1, 2013.
Undergraduate students with a strong quantitative background in basic or applied sciences are encouraged to apply. Need more information? Check out our website
