Would you like to experience what working in a cell biology research lab is like, learn essential molecular biology techniques, be part of a group of students that have the same experience, and receive pay for this experience?
The Engelke lab is offering three eight-week fellowships for USRF students. Under the guidance of Dr. Engelke, you will study how proteins are moved about in mammalian cells. This process is important and impaired in diseases as diverse as Alzheimer’s disease, polycystic kidney disease, and cancer. By studying how the process normally works, we can gain insights into what is happening in a disease. You will learn a variety of molecular biology and cellular biology techniques such as cloning, cell culture, fluorescence microscopy, image analysis, and data analysis. You will get experience in group work and hone your presentation skills.
