Get Involved

How to get involved in Microbiology 

There are many ways to get involved in microbiology at Cornell! In addition to formal classes, the department meets regularly to discuss recent literature during our journal club (put link here to the journal club website if we have one, or perhaps the course number) and to hear about exciting new research during our seminar series (link here) and annual symposium (link). For undergraduate students, one of the best ways to connect with faculty and hear about their interests is to attend these events and and learn about current research programs and interests.  

The Office of Undergraduate Biology also promotes undergraduate opportunities through the Biology Scholars Program , the Peer Undergraduate Research Advisors , and coordination with the Cornell Undergraduate Research Board.  Undergraduate students may also find opportunities through the CIHMD Undergraduate Research Experience program and through the Environment and Sustainability program.
