Description: 

The Institute for Biology Education at the University of Wisconsin-Madison invites junior and senior undergraduate students interested in research careers in the biological sciences to participate in the Integrated Biological Sciences Summer Research Program (IBS-SRP). As part of the program, students do full-time research for 10 weeks with a faculty member in one of eight disciplinary areas: Biochemistry/Biophysics; Bioenergy; Cellular and Molecular Biology ; Computational Biology & Biostatistics; Ecology, Plants, and Environmental Systems; Molecular & Environmental Toxicology; Neurobiology; and Virology.

The eight disciplinary areas are connected through a seminar series highlighting major themes in biology, science writing, preparation for graduate school, and biological sciences careers. The major themes are: evolution, pathways and transformations of energy and matter in biological systems, information flow, exchange and storage in biological systems, structure and function, and systems biology.

At the end of the program, students give an oral presentation of their research results and write a final research report that is published in a program journal.
