||Research Opportunities in the
I am currently looking for one Master's student to begin
in Fall 2005 or after. There is also the potential for a second Master's
I usually have opportunities for quality undergraduates to work in
the research lab.
Funding for Student Research
- I currently have an NIH grant application that was just funded. This grant will provide stipend support for at least one
Master's level graduate student. This funding could start as early as Fall 2005.
- The Cell and Molecular Biology program also has funds
available to support Master's students. This source of stipends is
already committed for Fall 2005, but could be available to qualified students
in Fall 2006.
- I currently have an NIH grant application that I was
just funded. This grant will provide summer stipends ($3,000 or more)
for up to three undergraduate researchers. These stipends will be
available for Summer 2006. These stipends could be available to non-UW-L
- The College of Science and Allied Health offers similar
stipend support through the
Dean's Distinguished Fellowships.
- UW-L also offers
Undergraduate Research Grants ($1,250 of which $500 can be for living expenses).

Univ. Wisconsin Medical School, Univ. of Missouri, Columbia; and Kirksville
College of Osteopathic Medicine.
- 3 have entered dental school at Univ. Iowa, Univ.
Illinois-Evansville, and Univ. Kentucky.
- 2 have entered veterinary school at Univ. Wisconsin
- 1 has entered a medical lab science program at Univ.
- 2 have taken jobs in research or industry labs.
- 2 were selected as the most outstanding students in
- 2 received awards as the most outstanding student
researchers (at Truman State Univ.).
- 12 have presented their work at national conferences in
places like San Francisco, CA; Washington, D.C.; Salt Lake City, UT; and Austin, TX.
