Description: The Biochemistry and Cell Biology Honors Research Program is a suite of courses offering our seniors and advanced juniors the opportunity to perform a two-semester, individual research project in a research laboratory in Biochemistry & Cell Biology. Students having performed BIOS/BIOC 310 research in an off-campus laboratory in the Texas Medical Center will also be eligible to apply to perform honors research in that laboratory. The Honors Research Program courses function as a set and must all be taken in the same academic year. Registration for any of the courses requires a commitment to register for all three. Requires at least 15 hours of laboratory research per week, a proposal (revised from application), monthly reports, and a formal progress report (abstract, aims, progress toward aims, discussion of results, plans for the spring semester). Prerequisites: strong performance in (BIOC 310, or HONS 470/471) and BIOC 211 and either BIOC 301 or BIOC 341. Research professor recommendation required. Application for admission required (BCB Honors Program OwlSpace Resources). Repeatable for Credit.
