The Undergraduate Research Pledge
Many of our current and prospective undergraduate students are enthusiastic about research experiences, and these opportunities tend to be sparse at many other universities.
To help our students fulfill their research dreams, the faculty of the Computational Biology Department have announced the Undergraduate Research Pledge. Every undergraduate students majoring in computational biology will be guaranteed at least one semester of undergraduate research for credit, which can count toward the degree as an elective course in computational biology.
Students meeting the educational requirements may also wish to complete an honors thesis in computational biology. Successful completion of an honors thesis allows for a student to graduate with honors from the School of Computer Science.
To explore the types of research projects that our faculty lead, check out our faculty research page, which contains short profiles of our faculty’s work. More details about research logistics, as well as examples highlighting existing student research, will be posted here as they become available.
