Lowell Science Research Program

What is The Lowell Science Research Program?

The Lowell Science Research Program will inspire and prepare Lowell students to complete a real science research project in an area that interests them. Students will learn how to publicly present as well as publish their work. The program is open to sophomores, juniors, and seniors, with priority given to sophomores, juniors, and continuing interns..

During the school year, Lowell students will be taught and mentored by M.D.-Ph.D. students in the Medical Scientist Training Program at UCSF. Our planned talks from distinguished UCSF and Lawrence Berkeley faculty will include nano-biotechnology, stem cells, hematology, computational biology, computer science, computational physics, DNA self assembly and much much more.  In addition, Lowell students will be mentored by distinguished faculty members at UCSF who have agreed to take Lowell students into their labs at UCSF to engage in research.  The faculty will assign them a graduate student or postdoctoral fellow as a mentor as well as mentor the Lowell student themselves.

This program is now being offered as an optional course, with a letter grade.  It is NOT mandatory to signup for the class.   Participants are expected to produce a paper/presentation on their research in early Fall following their internship.  There will be some additional work if you are enrolled in the class.  Signups for the class will happen in the first week of meetings.
