Attention all freshmen and sophomores majoring in Biological Sciences:
Are you interested in getting involved in research in the biological sciences? There will be an organizational meeting for the NSF/Biology/Capstone Program on Friday, October 30 at 3:30 p.m. in the Quiet Study Room (BH 121). The meeting will include more details about the program and a dozen faculty members from the department will be present to briefly describe their research programs and interests. The presentations are expected to last a total of approximately 2 hours.
This program offers a two-and-a-half-year participation in biology research on campus and provides one way that Honors College students can fulfill their Capstone requirements. Students participating in the NSF/Biology/Capstone Program are associated with a research group in the Department of Biological Sciences and conduct experiments in ongoing research projects sponsored by the National Science Foundation.
See the flyer attached below for an agenda for the event. Details are provided at http://www.uic.edu/honors/learning/bioscapstone.shtml
Please RSVP to Eliza Callahan (email@example.com). Light refreshments will be served.
