Postings looking for Honors College researchers

Independent Research Opportunity at MUSC

Dr. Naohiro Yamaguchi’s lab is looking for undergraduate students to perform independent research at MUSC. The lab research has a focus on molecular biology and biochemistry looking at the function and regulatory mechanism of calcium transporting proteins as they are important in various muscle diseases. The student would participate in performing experiments such as DNA construction and expression, and functional assay of the calcium ion channel activity.

Ideal candidates would be a sophomore or junior who are interested in biomedical research. Candidates are expected to perform independent research for 10 hours or more per week. Longer time in the summer would be preferred. No prior lab experience is necessary as the lab will train the individual; however, strong motivation for research is required. Individuals wanting to perform independent research for Honors Immersed and/or a Bachelor’s Essay are preferred.

Interested individuals can contact Dr. Yamaguchi at yamaguch@musc.edu or current Honors College senior Savannah Heitmann at heitmannsp@g.cofc.edu.

Neuroscience Research Opportunity at MUSC

Dr. Heather Boger’s lab is looking for a student volunteer to aid in a research project about pediatric stroke and potential treatment strategies. This is a basic science (neuroscience) project using an animal model (rat) of pediatric ischemia. The student would be participating in surgeries, behavior assessment, and brain tissue processing, and microscopic analysis.

The ideal candidate would be able to volunteer 12-15 hrs a week. No previous lab experience is necessary but would be a nice bonus. The lab would do all training of the individual, so the student would have an active role in the project, including their name associated with any presentations/publications.

Interested students should contact Dr. Boger at boger@musc.edu for more information.
