Additionally, MU encourages interdisciplinary research and our program is part of a campus-wide network of research programs including life sciences, genetics, nutrition and plant biochemistry.
Prospective graduate students should apply through one of our participating departments:
MU offers a variety of forums for undergraduate research experience, including the Life Sciences Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program, and individual research credit hours. Students interested in gaining research experience in structural biology outside the classroom should contact individual faculty members.
