Undergraduate Research Week is April 11-15, 2016

Are you an Undergraduate Student with a passion for research, and interested in pathways to an exciting career in biomedical research?

The Council on Undergraduate Research, a nonprofit professional organization with almost 10,000 members from more than 650 colleges and universities, invites you to view a webinar presented by Blake Wiedenheft, PhD on his career path and research on the role of CRISPR in bacterial responses to bacteriophage infections.

 CUR invites you to follow the career journey of Dr. Blake Weidenheft, and his use of the CRISPR gene-editing tool (for more information about CRISPR, seehttp://www.aaas.org/news/science-selects-crispr-genome-editing-tool-2015-breakthrough-year). The Council on Undergraduate Research is excited to announce this special invitation to undergraduate researchers, from the prestigious National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Faculty mentors and undergraduate research program directors are also encouraged to attend, and share this information widely on their campuses.
