The Loren E. Wold Research Awards have been established by Biology alumnus Dr. Loren E. Wold (CAS ’97), a distinguished research scientist and Professor at Ohio State University.  Dr. Wold is a strong advocate of undergraduate research and mentoring.

 Each award supports summer research projects in the amount of $4,800 for salary and a $200 Conference Travel Award. Four awards will be given annually beginning in 2019. The award is open to high-achieving Biology undergraduates working in research labs of faculty in the Department of Biology and other departments in the College of Arts and Sciences, the School of Medicine, or the School of Public Health, as well as Boston University undergraduates from other majors working with a Department of Biology faculty member.

 Awardees will be selected from the funded UROP applicant pool, in consultation with the Chair of Biology and the Biology Honors Committee.
