Undergraduate Publications

Chart displaying the level of undergraduate publications since 2003

Working in a lab sometimes results in co-authoring a research publication. Since 2003, Brandeis undergraduates in the Division of Science have been co-authors on approximately 400 peer-reviewed research publications in scientific journals. 

The following is a list of selected publications co-authored by undergraduates and Biology faculty. Undergraduates names are shown in bold.
