Teach Lab: Research Methods Training

June 18, 2018 – August 24, 2018

Teach Lab, or Research Methods Training, is an opportunity for students to learn and practice many of the skills used in biomedical research. This 10-week summer program is recommended for undergraduate students who think they will pursue laboratory internship experiences as part of their preparation for medical or dental school. In addition to receiving hands-on instruction in common laboratory techniques (e.g., solution and gel preparation, cell culture, ELISA and much more), participants also receive instruction that helps them understand research concepts, experimental design and the fundamentals of documenting one’s work in a laboratory notebook.

Teach Lab is best suited for students prior to beginning their second year of undergraduate study. To be eligible, students must have successfully completed one year of undergraduate studies including at least one year-long series in calculus or science with a GPA of 3.0 or higher. A stipend is provided.
