Cell and Molecular Biology

The MU Life Sciences Fellows Program is actively seeking to diversify its graduate program application pool. As part of this effort, we are offering four summer research positions for undergraduates in 2018. Preference will be given to students interested in applying to PhD programs in the life sciences at the University of Missouri after completion of their undergraduate degree.
