Are you an undergraduate who would like to get a feel for graduate school and
work in a lab this summer? Consider the Biophysical Society’s Summer
This 11-week program, now in its eighth year, introduces undergraduate
minority students, disadvantaged students, and students with disabilities* to
the field of biophysics. Hosted by the University of North Carolina at Chapel
Hill, the program combines lab experience with lectures, seminars, and
team-building activities. More than 75 aspiring scientists have already
gained invaluable experience through the course.
All fees, housing, and travel costs required to participate are covered, and
