The lab of Christopher Cowan in the Department of Neuroscience at the Medical University of South Carolina is looking for an undergraduate student to assist with experiments related to mouse models of autism. This project will focus on the interplay between neuroscience and immunology in autism models. Research work will include assisting with genotyping, brain collection and sectioning, immunohistochemistry, brain cell isolation, and a number of molecular techniques.
Volunteers should dedicate 6-12 hours per week to this research. There is flexibility depending on class schedules. This is a wonderful opportunity to gain research experience while networking for career development. The Cowan lab is very friendly and there is a wealth of knowledge from which to learn.
If interested, please send your resume to Catherine Bridges at firstname.lastname@example.org.
