The Lombroso Lab welcomes undergraduates who are interested in a serious and intensive research experience during the academic year, during the summer, or both. Working in the lab is not simply an opportunity to develop many scientific research skills. It also offers the possibility of publishing in refereed scientific journals. Most important, it offers the opportunity to join a community of scholars working on issues of critical importance.
The Lombroso Lab gives preference of admission to freshmen and sophomores in order to allow them to dedicated several years in the lab on a project.
Undergraduate students who have worked in the Lombroso Lab have won several honors since 2005, including the Churchill Scholarship, the Mitchell Scholarship, the Marshall Scholarship, Phi Beta Kappa, the Rhodes Scholarship (2 winners and a finalist), and the Yale Biology Prize. Many of them have graduated magna or summa cum laude (Yale), or with University Honors (Wesleyan). They have gone on to do graduate school at Cambridge University, Duke University, Harvard University, MIT, Oxford University, Stanford University, and Trinity College, Dublin.
It is a privilege to work with, mentor, and write for these outstanding students.
