The program is offered to college students who are interested in biomedical research. Preference is given to students who are currently college sophomores or juniors. Disabled students, minority students and students from smaller liberal arts institutions where comparable research facilities are unavailable are particularly encouraged to apply.


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.
