Each summer, the Department of Molecular Biology and the Lewis-Sigler Institute for Integrative Genomics provide intensive laboratory research experiences to a select group of Princeton undergraduates. Each student joins a world-class research group—headed by a Faculty member and carries out an original research project. Participants are immersed in a culture of close collaboration with other undergraduates, graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and faculty, and thereby experience first-hand what it is like to be a scientist.
