REU Site: Research Experiences for Undergraduate Minorities in Genetics and the Basic Sciences

About the program

Welcome to our site! The purpose of this program is to provide undergraduate students interested in a career in biological sciences a 10 week research experience. Underrepresented minority students in the basic sciences will be provided with one-on-one training by LSUHSC faculty in designing and conducting experiments, as well as presenting their results. In addition to research, interns will participate in seminars and interactive workshops on topics such as resume writing for graduate school applications and responsible conduct in research. The program matches students with faculty members from one of LSUHSC's Departments or Centers of Basic Sciences:

  • Biostatistics
  • Biochemistry and Molecular Biology
  • Cell Biology and Anatomy
  • Genetics
  • Microbiology, Immunology, & Parasitology
  • Neuroscience  
  • Pharmacology
  • Physiology

At the end of the program, students will present their research in the form of a poster at LSUHSC Research Day. These posters will be judged by local scientists.
