Biology Research Opportunities at Worcester State
At Worcester State University, we understand that the best learning includes doing. That’s why we offer you the opportunity to hone your scientific skills and techniques by working on faculty-led undergraduate research exploring topics like anti-microbial and anti-parasitic drug development, animal and plant diversity in Worcester County, application of virtual reality to studies of human perception, and genes involved in frog development. We also promote independent internships with local biological and biotechnology organizations as well as interdisciplinary research with other Worcester State departments in the fields of chemistry, computer science, mathematics, environmental sciences, and psychology.
Collaborating with your professors on research projects will reinforce laboratory learning and expose you to best research practices. Many of our students have co-authored papers in academic journals and presented their research at local and national academic and scientific conferences.
