Potential trainees from the College of Science and Mathematics, College of Social and Behavioral Sciences, and College of Health and Human Development may choose from a variety of participant laboratories here at CSUN

Student research potential and capabilities will be enhanced by exposing them to sophisticated and modern research techniques employed in the proposed areas of biophysics, biochemistry, cellular and molecular biology, immunology, psychology, neurophysiology, and microbiology.  All students will be provided with research opportunities and guidance in biomedical research projects from outstanding CSUN scientists.
