The Microbiology and Immunology Undergraduate Summer Research Program is sponsored by the faculty and Department of Microbiology and Immunology of Loyola University Chicago. The program is designed to provide a stimulating "hands on" research experience for students who are considering graduate education in molecular Microbiology or Immunology. Under the guidance of a selected faculty member, the student will actively participate in an ongoing research project. He or she will learn basic research skills, attend various scientific seminars and journal clubs, participate in a series of special summer workshops and present his or her results to the department. There is a stipend of $3000 dollars.
