Regional Research & Experiential Learning-Department of Biological Sciences - Carnegie Mellon University

Regional Research & Experiential Learning

Our departmental research faculty mostly focus in basic research approaches within the disciplines of cell and developmental biology, biochemistry and biophysics, genetics and molecular biology, computational biology, and neuroscience. Many of our students are interested in more clinical research positions or internships that provide teaching experience, and have found positions that provide relevant experiences in these fields outside of the Department of Biological Sciences. These opportunities have allowed students to explore a multitude of topics, from Entomology to Tissue Engineering.

The list below provides examples of experiences students have participated in within the greater Pittsburgh area.
