Welcome! The Department of Biology, with support from the university and the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, provides this resource to help you find a research lab, obtain credit for your research, or complete an Honors Thesis. Looking for a research sponsor? Research departments and faculty interests are listed within department profiles. A list of faculty who have accepted Biology undergrads is available here. Stanford's Office of Science Outreach has a limited number of internship opportunities as well.
The Department of Biology actively encourages students to take advantage of the many research opportunities available in the Stanford community. Undergraduate Biology majors often perform independent research projects in research labs on campus. Click here for a list of faculty who have recently trained undergraduates. Off-campus projects are also possible. In either case, these research projects frequently fulfill the requirements for graduation in Biology with Honors.
Summer Research Opportunities will be posted the 1st week in January!
