BIOL 93: Independent Research Internship in Biology
Course OverviewBIOL 93 is a one-semester course that enables the student to experience what life science research is like by working with a Biology department faculty sponsor in their laboratory at Brandeis University. In consultation with the student’s faculty sponsor, the student will design and carry out an individual research project, and give oral and written presentations about this work. Students are permitted to do BIOL 93 research with Brandeis life sciences faculty who are not in the Biology department (e.g., in Biochemistry), but to do so, the student must obtain permission of the BIOL 93 Research Coordinator. In all cases, the proposed research must have a biological basis and ask a biological question. Students cannot use BIOL 93 for off-campus internships.
