Essential ingredients for sustaining undergraduate research programs

from BioScience

During Nitya Jacob's postdoctoral teaching fellowship, she conducted research with undergraduate students. From then on, the molecular biologist wanted student research to be integral to her career as an educator and scientist. When Jacob took a faculty position at Oxford College of Emory University, the 2-year school had no summer research program for students. "When I began at Oxford 12 years ago, they were starting to think about undergraduate research and ... had just started a formalized program across all disciplines during the academic year," said Jacob. Administrators told her that they were open to expanding students' summer research opportunities. So, building on an existing summer research program at Emory, Jacob, in collaboration with her colleagues, developed a similar program for Oxford students and also integrated research into the curriculum. more
