Undergraduate Research Insight at USD’s Sci-Mix

Tuesday, March 20, 2012

One hallmark of a University of San Diego undergraduate education is the opportunity for students to do tangible research work, learn the inner workings of a laboratory, gain expert mentorship from a faculty member and, in the words of one USD chemistry professor, a chance to “move the science along.”

For undergraduate students in biology, chemistry/biochemistry, physics/biophysics, marine science and environmental studies and doubly interested in joining a science faculty member’s laboratory for a research project, attending Wednesday night’s free Spring Sci-Mix, from 6-7:30 in the Shiley Center for Science and Technology’s Atrium, is a must.

Professors from each of the science disciplines within the SCST building will be there, along with current undergraduate research students, to discuss their respective research projects. The projects will be presented in poster form to give prospective students a visual on what kind of research is being done.

This is a USD student’s chance to learn more about the faculty-led research projects available, meet new professors within your major and ask questions of them or current students. This is a great opportunity to possibly find something that could become quite a memorable part of your college experience at USD for a semester, summer or longer. Refreshments will be served.
