Undergraduate Internship Opportunity at MUSC!

The Yamaguchi lab at MUSC in the Regenerative Medicine and Cell Biology Department is looking for an undergraduate intern! Interns participate in cell culture, biochemical experiments, and have the opportunity to participate in many different experiments including working with radioactive ryanodine.

Details: The project is focused on studying calcium signaling within cardiac and skeletal muscles; specifically, the molecular basis of activation and inhibition of Ca2+ and Mg2+ by the Ryanodine receptor in cardiac (RyR2) and skeletal (RyR1) muscles. Interns participate in experiments as opposed to data analysis, and no previous lab experience is required. Dr. Yamaguchi is looking for students who are able to come work in the lab for ~10 hours a week with a very flexible schedule.


  • Lab experience including cell culture and biochemical experiments
  • Internship is applicable for Honors Immersed and/or your Bachelor’s Essay

Great Fit For: Biology, chemistry, and biochemistry students who are juniors and below.

To Apply: Email your resume to kralml@g.cofc.edu or yamaguch@musc.edu.
