Undergraduate Studies


Molecular Biology Research

As Molecular Biology majors, students have the opportunity to conduct original research in the laboratories of world-class scientists. A broad range of research areas is represented among the Molecular Biology faculty; in addition, majors can pursue interdisciplinary interests by working with approved faculty in departments including Chemical and Biological Engineering, Chemistry, Computer Science, Ecology & Evolutionary Biology, Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering, Physics, and Woodrow Wilson School. 

The core of the undergraduate research experience commences with the spring semester Junior Independent Work, during which students identify and explore the research topic they will pursue for their senior thesis research. It continues with the Senior Thesis, a year-long, original research project under the supervision of a faculty adviser. An intensive summer research program between the junior and senior years is available for students pursuing laboratory-based thesis research.
