Adam Cook worked with Dr. Sarah Wyatt on an experiment to the International Space Station.

Undergraduate Research

Undergraduate Research and Conference Funding

The Environmental & Plant Biology Department actively encourages undergraduate research and scholarly activity.

Each undergraduate is required to complete at least one semester of research (PBIO 4940). There are numerous faculty who are willing to sponsor undergraduate research, and there are also financial resources to support your work.
