Description: 

The focus of the 2010 Wadsworth Center's summer research experience for undergraduates is "Opening Doors to Creative Inquiry". The Center is unique in having a melding (no walls) between diverse and dynamic research fields, including cellular and structural biology, molecular genetics, and theoretical and computational modeling. We believe that creative inquiry in scientific research is a cognitive skill which can be taught by mentors in our research laboratories, learned by summer interns, and then applied toward their career goals.
