Research and Honors
Students interested in research should contact Dr. Andy Hu, the director of the Honors research program.
Students who wish to earn the bachelor’s degree in Biochemistry with Honors need to allow at least two semesters for a significant project.
Many of those who have elected to do research have been co-authors on research publications. Some biochemistry majors have done Honors research in the laboratories of other School of Medicine faculty members.
Make a point of meeting Biochemistry faculty members to learn what research projects are being conducted, and what opportunities are available for students. Some laboratories have work-study positions.
Minority students should look for support through the Minority Biomedical Research Support program or the Minority Access to Research Careers program.
