Undergraduate chemistry research at UW-LUniversity Environment:

US News & World Report and Kiplingerís Personal Finance magazines consistently rank the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse among the best colleges in the US. The IBiS program at UW-L unites faculty and students from the departments of Biology, Chemistry, and Microbiology in common efforts to explore biology at the cell and molecular levels.  IBiS researchers enjoy outstanding equipment and facilities that allow them to apply virtually every technique in modern biomolecular science.

All of the IBiS faculty have extensive experience teaching and mentoring undergraduates.  We have developed a successful model for faculty-student collaborative research which has resulted in over 26 scientific publications with undergraduate co-authors.  In addition, over 230 undergraduate research presentations have been made, including numerous presentations at national scientific meetings.


The City of La Crosse is situated on the banks of the Mississippi River in the scenic 7 Rivers Region. Plentiful outdoor activities including 100ís of miles of bike trails, hiking, canoeing, fishing, and birding are literally out our back door.  La Crosse abounds with summer activities including the annual Riverfest and La Crosse Loggers minor league baseball.   Information about other events and activities in and around the La Crosse area can be found at:  http://www.explorelacrosse.com/ and http://www.couleeregion.com/.
