Eastern Connecticut State University is pleased to host the 2nd Health & Life Sciences Summer Undergraduate Research Program!  This year we are offering two tracks:  Bioscience – Search for Cures and Health and Physical Activity.

Track One:  Bioscience – Search for Cures

Are you interested in:

  • exploring how drugs are discovered through the study  of plants?
  • getting a hands-on look at stem cell research?
  • honing your lab skills?

This is the track for you!  Work with faculty to explore these fascinating areas and work with state-of-the-art equipment. You will also learn how to present your research in a Poster Presentation session at the end of the program.

Track Two:  Health and Physical Activity

Are you drawn to finding ways to build health communities?  This track will focus on:

  • the study of exercise testing protocols
  • role of nutrition in health
  • use of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) to study the health of the community

After working with some of the latest concepts in the field, you will participate in a research project integrating these areas.  You will also learn how to present your research in a Poster Presentation session at the end of the program.
