Dr. Koivisto promises to devote specific time each week to these students ensuring that they receive proper training and education to understand basic molecular biology techniques, practice scientific methodology and basic mouse husbandry. Students will be expected to attend and participate in a bi-weekly lab meeting specifically for undergraduate students working in the lab. During lab meeting, students will be asked to present their data and will gain precious skills in critical thinking that will help prepare them for careers in medicine or other advanced studies.

Currently, his lab is working on three projects that would involve collecting and analyzing data. One project involves studying the effects of obesity and diet in the initiation and promotion of uterine cancer. The second project involves studying how tumor suppressor genes PTEN and P53 alter hormone signaling to drive uterine cancer. These two projects are expected to result in manuscript publication over the next year. The third project involves studying the microbiome in mice as it relates to cancer. This project is a pilot project and therefore a little riskier when it comes to resulting in a formal publication.

This is currently a volunteer position, but Dr. Koivisto hopes to work to develop a way to fund outstanding undergraduates in the future. If you are interested in this research and mentorship opportunity, please contact Dr. Christopher Koivisto at koivisto@musc.edu.
