In addition to our own students, undergraduates from four-year colleges and universities from across the US are selected to come to MIT to conduct summer research in the science and biotechnology areas. This year, twenty-three students – 10 MIT undergraduates and 13 visiting undergraduates – spent the summer conducting hands-on research with MIT faculty members on a host of topics ranging from metabolic engineering to Alzheimer’s disease and cancer research.
