The University of Oregon offers interdisciplinary and collaborative research opportunities and training in the life sciences through our Institute of Ecology and Evolution, Institute of Molecular Biology, Institute of Neuroscience, and Oregon Institute of Marine Biology. Life science research faculty come from academic departments that include biology, chemistry, human physiology, physics, and psychology. Applicants to graduate programs visit http://biology.uoregon.edu/graduate/. Undergraduate research programs include the Summer Program for Undergraduate Research (http://biology.uoregon.edu/SPUR/), NICHD R25 Summer Research Program (http://r25srp.uoregon.edu), and NSF REU Site Program in Molecular Biosciences (http://uoreu.uoregon.edu). These programs aim to train students to become creative explorers, to expand their interest and excitement in science, and to increase opportunities for them to pursue careers in research.
