Summer Institute for Life Sciences (SILS) VIII Schedule Coming Soon!

The Office of Undergraduate Biology welcomes any undergraduates engaged or interested in research this summer to join us for a series of skills-building summer workshops and social activities as part of the Eighth Annual Summer Institute for Life Sciences (SILS VIII).  Interested students can subscribe to our mailing list here. Programming runs a few times a month during June, July and early August.  

The Fifth Annual Undergraduate Research Ethics Workshop will be held on the morning of June 12, 2018. This annual event is open to all students interested in the life sciences. This year's focus will be on the ethics around authorship.  The SILS VIII Summer Symposium will be held on campus this year on Wednesday, August 8th. An impressive breadth of research was presented by undergraduate scientists last summer! See 2017 abstracts here.  Other past SILS activities have included SILS-Mann Library citation management workshops, TED Talk movie night, graduate and medical school planning sessions, and a SILS Skills night.
