Description: 

The biology department at Pepperdine University conducts a summer research program geared specifically to undergraduate students at the sophomore and junior levels. The faculty will conduct a 14-day research orientation workshop where students will be introduced to the uses and limitations of specific research tools and techniques. The workshop will culminate with a visit to the James San Jacinto Mountains Reserve near Idylwild, California and the presentation of student proposals for summer projects. Over the remainder of the summer, students will pursue individual research projects under the direction of faculty. Visiting scientists will hold special research seminars in each research area. The research program will conclude with a student research symposium in late July in the new Keck science facilities.
