Alkaline phosphatase stained mouse stem cell colonies

GOAL:

To prepare ten undergraduate Stem Cell Scholars through hands-on research experience and a selected set of courses.

REQUIREMENTS:

Biology students must be enrolled in (or have completed) BIOL 302 and either BIOL 303 or BIOL 309. Biochemistry students must be enrolled in (or have completed) CHEM 421 or CHEM 423. Successful candidates are likely to have a good GPA, be highly recommended by their instructors, and have demonstrable interest in stem cell biology. Prior research experience is not required to be accepted into this program.

PROGRAM:

The Bridges to Stem Cell Research (BSCR) program trains Scholars in the basic stem cell biology techniques at CSU-Fullerton during a 7-month pre-internship (June – December). The Scholars then complete their 7-month paid internship in a lab of their choice at one of the collaborating institutions. You can find more information about the BSCR program through the “Program” link.
